NEW ARTIST FINDS: SOME MINOR NOISE
Ever since electro-pop contracted Lady Gaga herpes, there have been a slew of one-dimensional pop stars trying hard to mix it up and avoid coming off as an American Idol finalist to the fans. Luckily, the alternative electronic movement never lost steam in the aftermath and has produced the righteous yin to the yang of the electro-pop world.
Toronto-based duo Some Minor Noise is one of the few emerging indie attractions touted to go big in the electronic scene. We tip our hat to Bitcandy curator Pavit B for this enlightening discovery.
Some Minor Noise’s choice of band name is an appropriate manifestation of their lo-fi electro soundscapes that derive their creative inspiration from tear-soaked memories and excessive alcohol.
Although the Crystal Castles comparisons seem inevitable, this duo has also been strongly influenced by bands like Peaches, The Weeknd, and Death From Above.
Their popular single “It Never Ends” is a perfect embodiment of their enigmatic approach at churning out future pop that seems to be heavily laced with ketamine.
SOME MINOR NOISE - IT NEVER ENDS
It’s quintessential brooding music with a deceptively uplifting touch. "Coffers" is another great track that pairs a strapping 4/4 pulse and a seasick, shifting synth line.
SOME MINOR NOISE - COFFERS
The charming melancholy in their music has garnered much critical acclaim and hurrahs from the alternative electronic music fanbase. Some Minor Noise’s new track titled "Aeroplanes" from their first LP has shown their ability to fine-tune their talents to deliver audiogasm-inducing production quality.
Overall, Some Minor Noise’s Jane Void and Wayne Doe do a dandy fine job of weaving claustrophobic synths, honey-dipped vocals and complex beats together to deliver some dangerously addictive lo-fi electronic music.
