Sydney/Adelaide duo, Collarbones are probably making the most innovative RnB music in Australia at the moment. Following 2012’s fantastic Die Young LP, the pair have released the free, Atlantis 2014 EP. Like most of their work, it’s a layered and introverted soundscape that borrows from contemporary RnB and electronica. As the title suggests, Atlantis 2014 is a world of its own built on lush synths, pulsating beats and sparse melodies. Lead-vocalist Marcus Whale leads the way with his dulcet tones and runs while his partner in crime , Travis Cook, engulfs it in a hazy atmosphere. It’s pretty startling stuff.
Collarbones will take to Sydney’s Seymour centre as part of Vivid Festival on 6 June with Synergy Percussion. You can grab your tickets here.
