about

We are long overdue a dose of Fairmont’s lush harmonic synthscapes around these parts, which is why we are postively glowing with pride as we unleash old romantic Jake Fairley‘s latest EP – the eagerly anticipated follow up to his fuzzy wuzzy Coloured In Memory album – on an unsuspecting world: let the Velora EP envelop you like a soon-to-be-favourite jumper.

The layered harmonies of lead track Velora affirm Jake’s current tendencies to vocalise, its mantra-like refrain echoing with a moody, witchy romance before giving way to Ununoctium‘s ominously pulsing celebration of synth, compounding the tension with every throbbing breath of the semi-modular. Cannon calls shotgun on the B2, coupling a trademark hypnotic vocal hook onto cascades of dancefloor-directed arpeggiations in a union that competently straddles either side of the indie-electronic fence, before the positively strobo-sonic proportions of Vanguard culminate in a soaring, dystopian big city anthem that owes more than its first syllable to the legacy of the mighty Vangelis.
