avalon + pacific!.


avalon are a japanese four piece band, all members (aged 20 to 25) playing synthesizers and keyboards. their press info describes their music as 'melodious romantic synthesizer neo-pop' and that definitely gives you a good idea of what they sound like. but when i hear their tracks like "avalonian's shrine" it makes me think of a smoked-up club where a crazy jazz band took over justice' live equipment and started an insane neo tokyo live jam session.

avalon also mention hot chip and metronomy as their influences - but stop imagining what that would sound like and start listening already:

avalon - avalonian's shrine
avalon - exodus testament

those two originals have been floating around on quality blogs like bibabidi, knicken and electrorash before. but as we are like so cool, we managed to get ahold of avalon's new remix for 'sunset blvd' by pacific! as well and this one has not been on the blogs yet. and that remix just provides more reasons why avalon are definitely here to stay:

pacific! - sunset blvd (avalon remix)

now go and show avalon some myspace love!
