Relation – Optimistic (Cassette Club Remix)

12 May

YDP has been sitting on this track for a few months now, but it’s definitely the right time to share it.  Relation is new to me, and describes themselves in the following way:

“Essex boys Andrew Leary and Oliver Keech have developed an alternative, unique sound by combining meaningful lyrics with synth-pop to create both emotional depth and electronic rhythms. Although the compositions are truly progressive and they embrace a futuristic approach to their productions, their music has brought comparisons to New Order and the Pet Shop Boys as well as a wink to Depeche Mode.”

The track “Optimistic,” off their debut album, “Fear of the Night,” is pretty well nuanced, but if you’re comparing yourself to the heavy hitters above, you’d better bring it.  The track really takes off when masters of electronica Cassette Club get a hold of it and transform it into something AMAZING.  I love where CC goes with the haunting synths over the choral breaks.  Brings in a whole new dimension of sound.  Enjoy them both.
