Earlier this month, Apparel Tronic released You Are Home, an experimental six-track EP from Japanese duo Omnine, made up of visionary musician and sound designer Gak Sato and singer Hiroko Mastropaolo.
The duo’s prefered equipment all dates pre-1984, including the Suzuki Omnichord, and the music they craft is an eerie fusion of ‘80s synth pop—of the skewed variety, of course—and more modern electronica. It’s a graceful and ethereal style that mixes Eastern sensibilities with trippy-yet-accessible electronics.
In support of the brilliant EP, Omnine have offered up the EP’s closing cut, “fase,” as today’s XLR8R download. True to form, the track is a whirlpool of stunning synths that float in and out of the mix across the three-minute run time.
You can grab “fase” via WeTransfer below, with the EP available here.
