Robert Gray Reader Find

By Robert Gray in New Music on Friday 5 August 2011

Syntaks remixes Pale Sketcher’s Can I Go Now

Casper Johansson Reader Find

By Casper Johansson in New Music on Tuesday 19 October 2010

Danish duo Syntaks‘ remix of Pale Sketcher’s Can I Go Now (Gone Version) employs a ‘double-time rhythm and a cloud of shoegazey guitars to bring the track to new heights’. We think it’s red hot. And it’s off the always hip Ghostly International label.

By Casper Johansson in New Music on Thursday 15 April 2010

Like their hyperactive creator, Deastro’s songs can’t sit still, hopping from swooning dream-pop to gonzo TV theme songs to whisper-soft folk to crunching robot-rock, and always ringing with Chabot’s earnest tenor.

Michelle Wilding Reader Find

Syntaks’ Blue Sunshine

Casper Johansson Reader Find

By Casper Johansson in Video on Wednesday 3 March 2010

The beautifully hypnotic video for the Syntaks‘ song Blue Sunshine is an appropriate tribute to the pair’s approach to music-making: a wash of color, fleeting glimpses of half-remembered imagery both heavenly and apocalyptic, and vertiginous shifts in scale superimposed over its creators’ faces.

Remember Fade To Grey, that seminal new romantic dance hit from 1980s. Well, neither do we.
