GUEST SINGER Release New Single ‘Think Face’
Ahead of the release of their new EP Limbo Days, Guest Singer have shared 80s-inspired synth-pop single Think Face.
The Doncaster trio, Jake Cope, Paul Burdett and France Lahmar, compose dark party and anti-motivational electronic dance songs for the post-truth generation, filled with catchy pop hooks, new wave guitar notes and malfunctioning bass lines. Recorded and produced in domestic places without the use of any instruments, but only laptop softwares, the resulting EP has a digital engine which exemplifies the sharing practice of digital culture – “The artificial over the authentic is a choice we all make every day, so why not carry that through into music?”
“Why can’t we just skip to the part where we all get what we want?”, Jake croons on new single Think Face, an easing 80s synth-pop anthem for the socially disenfranchised. Focusing on the fake-ness and the everyday pressure we face from social media, the single offers gauzy guitar strings and glitchy bass lines, all in a unique analogue texture-like sound which glides perfectly with Guest Singer’s divine synth filled vocals.
Speaking of the new track, Jake explains:
Essentially, it’s about the emotional effort of songwriting. How it can snare you in a psychologically abusive relationship with yourself; requiring so much identity and only offering up small moments in return. When the music fades all that we’re left with is limbo days.
Guest Singer are yet to announce any live shows, but we are looking forward to any future announcements.
Listen to their sophomore EP, Limbo Days, out on February 14th via Heist or Hit.
