Berlin based synthpop duo uon make a quick return to the blog (previously featuring in a January playlist) with their new track Sweet Denial. The track comes with an Adrian Zwicker directed video which features dancer, choreographer, and performer Phyllis Akinyi.
Sweet Denial takes elements of Berlin’s electronic and dark music scenes and fashions them in to something beautiful and different. The pulsating bass and slow, minimal percussion give the track an almost ‘club’ feel but with dreamy soul-infused vocals and an emphasis on melody, the track functions just as well outside the confines of a sweaty basement. Be sure to check out the band’s Facebook and Instagram pages for news on release dates and more.
