London/Manchester dream-pop purveyors Dear Leaders soon release their release their mesmeric new single – ‘Find Me’ as a free download.
Dear Leaders – comprising of Patrick Burland, Jess Whelligan, Tim Wong and George Wigmore – will be performing an exclusive live set at The Finsbury, London N4 on October 30th.
We checked out ‘Find Me’ :-
This starts with a buzz of concern.
There is more here than meets the ear. Or the eye. A discomfort that cannot be ignored.
Drums are small, anxious taps. Keyboard sounds are slightly out of tune. The voice of Jess Whelligan is misty, otherworldly and rare.
The voice seems blanched against the aromatic ethers of the sound – made by drums – and those wet scrubbing synths.
If there is any light at all – it is reflected by the hardstone glints of guitar.
Pure, translucent electro-pop with a voice so full of ghostly, magic ritual that the cold breath will cause a shudder to ripple through your consciousness.
