Taken from Late Guest At The Party’s new album, Repeater is a rock-ish romp that showcases some 90’s brit pop influences infused with some electronic flourishes.
He’s voice so reminds me of Dead Can Dance lead singer, Brendan Perry, and that’s a good thing since I love Brendan’s voice. This track has a huge chorus and solid production. This track really deserves more attention, the vocals alone are fantastic!

A bit more on the gothic side of electronic rock. Well done and full of atmosphere and mood.
Reminds, vocally that is, of Passion Pits coupled with Peter Bjorn and John instrumentation.
Gates will be on tour this summer with Gemini Club.
Take the Rock energy from The Presets and splash in some melancholy from The Postal Service and top if off with a Giorgio Moroder bassline and wala, you have “The Optimist”, from City Rain. Well balanced mix of Rock, Pop, and electronic musings.
