Canadian synth wave, post punk & industrial duo Meter Bridge are releasing their latest single ‘It Was Nothing’ through WEATNU Records. Comprised of two tracks, this is being offered as a free download via Bandcamp. In this thoughtfully arranged and sparkly composition, moogs whistle and rhythms click into the night, as these two voices blend into a sound that is part Human League, part Blade Runner, and 100% Meter Bridge.
‘It was nothing’ oozes with confidence as its melodic synth swells, infectious percussion & that immense duel vocal attack swirl within the sonic ether. This is what we’ve come to love from a band on the cusp of greatness. Perfection personified.
Meter Bridge, who are Richard Kleef and Jill Beaulieu, have a distinctive and unmistakable sonic identity, unique from anybody else on the current electronica scene. This is led by their trademark multi-layered boy / girl melodic vocals, melded with minimalistic groove-infused alternative dance melodies teetering between retro and futuristic.
The B-side for this single features a remix by Rodney Cromwell, whose debut ‘Age of Anxiety’ LP (2015, Happy Robots Records) introduced electronic pop lovers to some epic retro future synth music. Influenced by the electronic sounds of the pre-digital age, his music has crossover appeal equally embracing synthpop and indiepop. This has gained Cromwell solid support from the likes of Malcolm Holmes (OMD) and Rusty Egan (Visage, Rich Kids).
Meter Bridge will be playing the Electro London Festival on September 10, 2016 with Wolfgang Flür (ex-Kraftwerk) and others. Rodney Cromwell will be playing Electro London at Electrowerkz on January 30th with Massive Ego and others.
