Experimental 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.
Connected View’s debut album for Hidden Shoal, Chun Pop, will see release on March 21st.
Jake McFee, Charlie Fieger and Kyle Pieloch began making music in 1999 in a band called Psychic Violence, influenced by artists like Sonic Youth, Blonde Redhead, PJ Harvey, Radiohead, Mazzy Star and The Velvet Underground. Psychic Violence broke up in 2000, then reconvened as Connected View in 2008 with a fresh range of diverse new influences, including Ennio Morricone, Stereolab, Broadcast, Boards of Canada, Lali Puna, Pram, Piero Umiliani, Can and Cluster. The first Connected View album Atlas was released in 2013.
Connected View’s music is available for licensing (master & sync cleared) through Hidden Shoal. Please contact us with some basic details about your project and the track(s) you wish to use and we’ll be sure to get back to you straight away.
