Artist: ALEX KELMAN
Who: Artist from Bratislava (Slovakia) who mixes psychedelic post-punk, shoegaze
and synthwave music with a twist from The Soft Moon, Death In Vegas or Curve. Output
is a mixture of beautifully noisy guitars, catchy dance beats, and rousing synthesizers, layered with captivating vocals.
New single: VHS
It features shoegaze/dream pop band Secrets Of The Third Planet and is the first piece that he shared from his upcoming album titled Ilusia which lands on 15 March. More details and order info here.
‘VHS’ is a fuzzy and hazy slo-mo musing carried by layers of distorted guitars, starry-eyed synths, and Kelman‘s dreamy vocals. It makes me think of the soft and romantic side of British feedback legends The Jesus and Mary Chain.
The accompanying video is a stylish beauty. It’s clear proof that you don’t need a million dollars budget to create an eye-catching video that impresses you with its inventive visuals and composition. My eyes love it. Video of the month!
