Surroundings have a way of seeping into music, no matter how you try to avoid it.
Rising electronic duo Border Scout have decided to embrace this. Wandering for miles throughout the countryside, there's a sense of emptiness, a sense of space in their productions.
New cut 'Let's Pretend We're Dead' seems to underline this. Austin-based vocalist Stoney collaborates, adding an icy sense of soul to the electronic abstraction.
The accompanying visuals share this intensity. Featuring a car crash, it urges us to look at the bigger picture rather than fixate on petty details.
Check it out now.
Border Scout will release their debut album 'The Nature Of Things' on October 30th.
