ANORAAK – FIGURE (DreamPop – France)

Anoraak

Back after a long break, Parisian dreampop wunderkind Anoraak (aka Frédéric Rivière) has just released the brand new Figure EP on his own imprint Endless Summer Music. The opening track, “We Lost”, is a collaboration with long-time friend Slow Shiver, a new project from Italian-born LA-based Valente Bertelli. It’s a nostalgic ballad which offers the perfect balance between Anoraak’s lush synth arpeggios and Slow Shiver’s delicate vocals over a steady beat.

The EP also includes the dreamy, synth-driven “Odds Are Good”, which was featured last year on the compilation Eskimo Recordings Presents: The Orange Collection. This finely crafted tune mixes moody bass lines with 80s-tinged synths and evocative vocals to create a perfect example of sophisticated and contemplative synth pop.
