Not many bands can handle two people in charge of a microphone - hell, most groups struggle with one front person - but Last Lynx seem to be able to handle double trouble.
The rising Swedish group utilise inter-weaving vocals, matching choral effects to euphoric pop crescendos. New single 'Lacuna' is a case in point, with Last Lynx matching a sparse, minimal electronic arrangement to toying, pleading vocals.
Robin Eveborn and Camilla Dahlstedt swap the mic, but it's Frederic Lindbolm who takes care of the gently sculpted lyrics. "'Lacuna' is about friendship… or love… or both" he explains. "When it suddenly ends although you were sure it wouldn't. The word Lacuna means something like negative space, like silence where it’s supposed to be sound or missing letters where there’s supposed to be words."
Produced by Lasse Mårtén, 'Lacuna' is set to appear on the band's 'Rifts' EP which is set to be released later in 2014. For now, though, we'll just have to make do with 'Lacuna'.
Gorgeous, moody, melancholic pop music, you can listen to it first on Clash.
'Lacuna' is set to be released on January 20th.
The new issue of Clash magazine is out right now. It's always on the money with breakthrough acts worth listening to. So, go and see.
