A right good slice of synthpop for you right now. It's called 'Breathe' and it's by Fractions, a band from the North East of England. The song is mainly characterised by a veritable wall of sound in distorted synth style, a thick sound that seems to fizz, hiss and crunch all around. It's bolstered by '80s-style power drums, featuring shattering cymbals and simple-but-deadly snare fills; glittering guitars weave their way through the air above the gloss of bass; a female vocal like a shard of sunlight floats through the heavy noise of the track. Listening to this is the aural equivalent of looking at a hypothetical Turner painting version of some desolate English town centre - a bit sad, a bit beautiful and a bit violent.
