Walyalup/ Fremantle based act Web Rumors, the synth pop sounds of producer, songwriter and musician Em Burrows take a detour into an early house/electro space with their upcoming 70s and 80s underground club inspired EP Disciple, giving us an early taste as we premiere a euphoric cut from the release with the single v (House of Yes).
Following recent singles Northern Service and Heaven, v (House of Yes) is a consciously chosen restrained sonic palette of digital piano, Oberheim style drums, expansive choral synth pads and electronic percussion. Accentuated by an impeccable sax solo courtesy of Boorloo local Bridget Cleary, what shines through is Burrows’ knack for melody and composition. As moving synth parts evolve throughout the tracks six minute and thirty one second length, the placement of intertwining vocal hooks beautifully layered with angelic harmonies highlight the releases infectiously good feel.
“The whole EP was a journey for me into making more instrumental dance-y pieces using a limited sound palette and keeping things pretty minimal. I love late 70s/early 80s dance sounds where there’s that great meeting of post-disco, early house and electro.” shares Burrow’s on the Disciple’s release, continuing “House of Yes was like an attempt to capture this sound I guess but in a more modern way! It was a bit of an experimental diversion for me, not writing “songs”, but I really just wanted to try and make some tracks that felt good and hopefully make people want to move!”
v (House of Yes) is a true testament to Em’s abilities as a songwriter, musician, vocalist, and producer. Be sure to give it a listen below, as we eagerly await Web Rumor’s full 5-track EP's release next Wednesday (August 17th).
