A cinematic gaze, synth-set duo Empathy Test return with Seeing Stars. A first look at their forthcoming debut album; dark wave meets future pop in this slice of brooding electronics from Isaac Howlett and Adam Relf.
Reflections of CHVRCHES or Purity Ring, fans will latch onto their addictive loops or seductive vocals. Cryptic sightings entwine confessions of love, consuming dismantled lyrics that touch the crippling pain of heartbreak – “you’ll never know how much it hurts, to fall so hard you see stars.”
Seeing Stars takes a step back compared to previous release, Demons. Impeding any major turns, this a fresh look at what’s next. Listen below.
