WL//WH Track Of The Day: EM_LEN “Samantha in the Garden”

Track Of The Day EM_LEN

Fourth monthly single in a row by Los Angeles-based synthwave artist EM_LEN that channels early ’80s UK new wave and synthpop into a meticulously produced, beautifully dark and rich melancholic sound made of atmospheric hazy synthetic textures, mesmeric pulsing beats and bleak bass vibrations over strong emotive swooning vocal ruminations.

Deftly blending equal parts glacial machine-made, sculpted with clinical precision, and brooding, warm lovelorn passions, the dark and goth-tinged “Samantha in the Garden” teases buzzing glaring synth layers flashing in epic, ecstatic and desolated relentless ascension, amid twinkling chiming chords, punctuated by hypnotic syncopated rhythms and far lashing claps, as sad pensive, Robert-Smith-esque, croons, isolated in agonising longing within an emotional outpouring of love
