Touché aka Alex Lilly and Bram Inscore are sweeping in with their debut LP It’s Fate set to release May 1, 2013. The dreamy duo will kick off a west coast tour this Spring with several support slots for Twin Shadow. Having already received accolades fromXLR8R to ELLE, Touché’s two halves touch upon hallucinogenic and esoteric ideas, aiming to find the place where their psyches overlap. The result is anthemic pop pieces darkened by the desires of the human heart and sharpened by personal politics.
It’s Fate is decorated with syncopated beats, experimental vocals and unexpected arpeggios – reverbed and distorted, yet smooth and warm. Intergalactic keys play over dark filtered bass sounds on the smooth moody track “Big Fan”. “Men Change” is a warm, karmic, deliriously catchy dark dance number that touches upon mortality and sexuality. Synths and vocals blend seamlessly in “Bad Dreams”, a funky ballad laced with brassy horns, while “Shhh! It’s Quiet Time” takes the iconic disco-era to new levels with explosive rhythm slicing through like karate chops of pop. Check out“Shhh! It’s Quiet Time” where it premiered with MTV Hive today.
Touché has released a series of exciting singles leading up to their debut full-length including remixes from Daedelus & Lee Cooper of Twin Shadow. Fans will have several chances to catch the hypnotic performance live on tour this Spring. Stay tuned for more exciting news coming soon!
