Cardiff band Private World have pulled another winner out of the bag, as can be heard on their latest single of polished synth-pop, 'Blue Spirit'.
The second track to emerge from their forthcoming debut album 'Aleph' (arriving on August 28 via Dais Records), in contrast to the previous 'Hypnagogia', while still exuding a similar glacial smoothness and otherworldly aura, 'Blue Spirit' takes its delicate synth and guitar lines for a more upbeat run, each of which are "carefully arranged so that they do not step on top of each other," say the five-piece.
Tom Sanders has a distinctively rich, if somewhat detached, voice that lends itself well to the melodies and light touch of instrumentation around it.
