Latvian synth-pop trio, Audience Killers, have released the music video for their latest single, Patterns. The track is lifted from the group’s debut album, ‘Floating Islands,’ which was released in May 2016. Watch it via YouTube below.
Audience Killers create a fluid blend of synth-pop and electro-pop that often draws comparisons to Mew and Passion Pit. Their debut album ‘Floating Islands’ delivers this and more with warm, inviting synths, dreamy guitar lines, and ethereal vocals. Petrovs’s striking falsetto is sure to bring to mind flashes of M83’s Anthony Gonzalez. Lyrically, ‘Floating Islands’ acknowledges the idea that one person has the ability to affect the lives of many with positivity and inclination.
Childhood friends Normunds Petrovs (vocals/guitar) and Arletta Supe (keyboards/backing vocals) only began writing and making music in 2009. Rounding out the trio, Petrovs and Supe met Edgars Oplucans (drums) during a live studio session in early 2010 and swiftly released their first two singles.
Audience Killers then released their debut EP Footprints And Heart in July 2012 and have since performed across much of Europe at The Great Escape, Reeperbahn Music Festival, and Tallinn Music Week, and released a standalone single, Two Bare Feet, to much acclaim. This year’s debut album release marks a major step for the promising Latvian band.
