Cosmic Armchair is the electronic pop duo of Cosmic Jane (vocals/songwriting/production) and Cosmic Ben (production/keyboards) who release beat-heavy synthpop songs with a different view of everyday issues. In 2014, leading European alternative electronic label Alfa Matrix signed the duo, making Cosmic Armchair their first Asian signing.
Synthpop duo Cosmic Armchair release their first full-length album after a decade of music making via Belgian label, Alfa Matrix.
Anyone familiar with the duo’s previous EPs, would be thrilled that Contact contains all the best attributes that Cosmic Armchair have represented all these years viz. an authentic channeling of 80s synthpop, now commonly called “synthwave”.
Not that Contact is purely retro in scope as there are sufficient modern EDM elements to keep the younger listeners interested. Recommended for synthpop lovers of all ages! As Side-Line commented in their review – The female fronted duo offers a very clean electropop which will please those into the sound of Technoir and related.
The duo launch Contact on Friday 1 December, 7.30 pm – 9 pm at Artistry Café, 17 Jalan Pinang.
