French electro pop duo Archipel exist in the space between mammoth crystal-clear waves and deep caverns. ¬†Their blips, splashes and juicy backbeats reverberate off each other like protons and electrons in a harmonious bonfire dance. ¬†Mixed into their synth-saturated layers is a tribal rhythm that brings MGMT’s early acid-soaked jams to mind. ¬†Fans of Twin Shadow, M83 and Purity Ring…bend an ear.
There are also healthy doses of¬†Sigur Ros-flavored vocals, creating an even more otherworldly atmosphere to the album. ¬†If there was a dance club on Venus, I do believe Archipel would pilot the DJ booth. ¬†Grab one of the 400 copies on black wax after the ‘buy’ link.
