Editors – Kiss (Colyn & Konstantin Sibold Remix)

The Editors added some electronic virtuosity with Benjamin John Power, aka Blanck Mass, who co-produced the latest album, EBM, and joined the band as a full-fledged member. Kiss is a hymnic composition with flickering flavours of an almost disco-like feeling.

However, the remix by Colyn and Konstantin Sibold transforms the song into an incredible captivating technoid track—reminiscent of synthwave, accompanied with hauling, altering synth-hooks and an energetic beat.

Tristesse – Im Taumel

The falsetto voice hovers above a lush composition, breathless and dreaming simultaneously. Tristesse, a German newcomer band, draws inspiration from classic indie-rock, shoegaze and dream pop, adding to the sound's richness.
