I often find myself coming back to the word “expansive” to describe music, but if you needed a textbook definition of what exactly I mean by it then look no further than the latest track from this LA based synthpop duo. One listen to ‘Autre Vie’ is all it takes for you to feel like there’s an entire galaxy of sound swirling round your head. Somehow managing to be both anthemic and atmospheric, this cut from their upcoming EP Violet Sky is like a heaven-sent dose of good vibes. It inspires awe and affection like it should be part of an Attenborough documentary sharing all the majesty of our world. By An Ion have delivered a regal and uplifting single which is unparalleled in its scope and grandeur.
