GIITTV: Track Of The Day #805: Medium Wave – The Most Beautiful Sound (We’ve Ever Found)

Mysterious soulful synth-pop six piece Medium Wave release their debut album Pleasure last week, and maybe as one could guess from t heir name it’s a lovingly crafted homage to pop records of the 1970’s and 1980’s, they describe it thusly: “10 upbeat songs brimming with Linn drum beats, synthesizer rock-outs and nectarous harmony melodies from twin lead vocalists.’

The Most Beautiful Sound (We’ve Ever Found)
has been swirling around my head since I heard it last year, all mellifluous intertwined melodies, deliciously glacial synths, dabbing organs lines that snake their way through your frontal lobes, funky baselines that get you grooving and craftily self-referential lyrics. “It’s not the sound of the future/It’s not the sound of the past/It’s not the sound of the city/It’s not a sound that will last,” they sing in a soulful crescendo of choruses… It’s the sound of skillfully crafted down-tempo art pop that sits somewhere between the early work of Depeche Mode, Prince, and Late of the Pier, but much on a much more individual frequency. Brave Medium wavers…
