London/Utrecht Based surprising Synth Pop Trio ‘Render Ghosts’ will release an incredibly performed song ‘Eye Rhyme’ in Formula Indie the December 3rd!
Render Ghosts (London/Utrecht) are a new trio taking synth pop’s origin myth of endless sonic possibility into the digital heart of the 21st century.
This is the first meeting of three musicians who make wildly different music as individualS:
Tamara van Esch is well known in the Netherlands as a singer-songwriter who sings in Dutch for her solo project Mevrouw Tamara, and for appearing on the Netherlands’ equivalent of The Voice.
Tom O.C Wilson is a classically-trained composer of infectiously playful arthouse pop.
Iain Chambers is a sound artist who uses buildings as instruments, famously turning London’s Tower Bridge into a massive resonating chamber, and is a founder member of the UK’s leading musique concrète ensemble, Langham Research Centre.
As a group they map out a unique space somewhere between Gracey and Everything Everything, Erasure and St Vincent.
Tom Wilson and Tamara van Esch’s lyrics map out the disorientation of human relationships in a digital world. Iain Chambers’ rich, synth-heavy soundscapes emerge from interlocking melodies and propulsive beats, allowing his musique concrète roots to impishly show through.
Render Ghosts’s debut release Eye Rhyme signals their pop intent from the outset. The song plunges us into the midst of the narrator’s early relationship doubts. Has this new partnership got legs, or is it just an eye rhyme?
