Connected View

Connected ViewExperimental instrumental-pop trio Connected View deliver woozy late-night jams wrapped in a sense of purposeful naivety. Kinetic synths, sinuous basslines, live drums and found sounds intertwine to create an atmosphere akin to eavesdropping on Boards of Canada improvising with Fridge. Whether digital or analogue, electronic or acoustic, all the ingredients are handled deftly, concocting an addictive musical stew full of colour and energy.

Discography

 

Chun Pop


March 2018

The on-the-fly yet incredibly dreamy nature of Chun Pop’s magic feels like switching between hidden late-night radio stations after a handful of quaaludes. Whether it’s the filthy, sinuous bass of ‘Galacticraft II’ or the interweaving synth tones of ‘Energy Positive House’, all the musical decisions here feel inspired, without obtrusive thought. Right from brooding opening track and single ‘Dark Dogs’, the album feels like eavesdropping on a wonderfully flowing jam session, with each successive track a gleaming gem that radiates and reflects off its neighbours in fascinating ways.

 

‘Dark Dogs’ (Single)

February 2018

‘Dark Dogs’ is the brooding first single taken from Connected View’s forthcoming album Chun Pop. The album will see release on the 21st of March 2018. The track is accompanied by a wonderful music video by Australian video artist and Hidden Shoal honcho Cam Merton
