Oslo synth-pop duo Eik have this week released a stormer of a debut single in the poptastic form of Love Storm. The single sees Eik combining a groaning bass-line with a heavy dose of nostalgic synthpop that could have easily fit into some eighties sci-fi film to create one of the catchiest tracks to be released this year.
The track has a strong radio quality to it as it bounces through four minutes of lyrical skill and also contains a strong club feel to it so the track will no doubt be a strong floorfiller to London’s club scene over the next few months.
Alongside the radio mix of Love Storm buyers of the single also get a second, longer version of the track as well as the amazing B-side All That You Said which follows a similar style to Love Storm and showcases more of the bands skill and putting together some of what is set to be this summers notable pop additions.
Sounding similar to fellow pop heavyweights Pet Shop Boys and Hurts and containing an infectiously dark melody, Love Storm is a fantastic introduction for Eik who are expecting their debut album, Undetected, to be released next month. Love Storm is a hint of what’s to come on the forthcoming parent release and a track that signifies the rise of the next big synth act and one that gets us here at Renowned For Sound very excited about.
