R – Change

Some debuts are delightful for their rawness; signs of brilliance beaming through something murky and untamed. Change, the debut release of Irish/French electro duo, R, on the other hand, will strike you as the finished article. This 3 minute electro-pop gem bears the marks of confident, experienced and vibrantly innovative song-writers. With numerous bold synth sounds nestling naturally together and frantic beats rushing under simple, measured vocals, the song is infectiously listenable. The track also benefits from Konstantine Pope’s (Standard and Push) expert production and comes with a stylish video. It is released on October 18th via Salt and Shake Records.
