"We're heavy on the retro vibe. Although I have a modern computer-based studio, I don't really use any sounds that weren't around in the 70s and we try to reflect that with our visual aesthetic too. It's not a conscious choice, it's just what moves me. The lyrics will generally have a story, but they’re not the focus of the song, as it's more about the sound and creating a vibe." Clive Mead/Silverlux
"Thrill of it is about the chemistry that you feel with someone that you shouldn’t, but there is an addictive electrification that you get when you are with them, and you can’t stay away. You know you should, but you don’t. It’s a type of torture, a self punishment that you put yourself through when you are with them because you know you can’t be with them, but the pain feels so good that you don’t turn away." Holly Wild
"“Rise Up” is top-notch and sits proudly as a very good example of electronic music that has been produced by someone who understands their craft. This probably comes down to Little and Poulton’s longevity in the Australian music scene but listening to “Rise Up” feels so satisfying with its homage to nostalgia and its ability to take electronic and organic elements to create a track that feels fresh."
"We mainly find inspiration in creating sounds with our synths and in pop culture. The result is a mix of synthpop, electronica and synthwave which sometimes results in pop songs and sometimes leans more towards the atmospheric side." Paraphon
The album is titled "Universal Outsider", a shimmering folk rock beauty that's been in the works for the last 5 years. Home to 13 small universes, each song offers a multidimensional sonic landscape, and a different story told through poetic lyricism.
"Thematically, the lyrics draw their inspiration from Haruki Murakami’s brilliant novel 1q84. The twin moons that characterize the parallel universe in the story gave the song its name and inspired us to produce an alternate (or parallel) version of the track." - My Friend The Chimpanzee
There are some unique qualities to his music, which by the way carries a very analog sound. It is filled with color, interesting drum grooves, as well as catchy melodies. His upcoming single "Marry You" is a fairly optimistic track that channels all of his Manchester roots. Although there might be some sense of nostalgia to it, the single captivates with its honesty and distinctive taste.
"It seemed fitting to combine a psychedelic-tinted lyricism, hints of anthemic uplift, and darker reflections on spaces riven by spiritual dereliction." - Ian Rowley
