The Sound Of Arrows, Voyage Album


Opening with an ambitious big synth intro that, at least in terms of powerful melody and synth-focus, nods to Vangelis, Swedish electronic music duo The Sound Of Arrows aim high right from the off with this their debut album. The vocals of opening track 'Into The Clouds', when they enter, are echoing and spacey, underpinned by a pulsing bass line however, the electro synth pop blend is hard to describe but undoubtedly missing a layer in anticipation of a beat to kick in; The Sound Of Arrows naturally oblige and the track continues in its quite uplifting synth pop vein with strong pulse driving it forwards. Previous comparisons with Pet Shop Boys have not been misplaced and with this opening track the band also perhaps suggest themselves akin to Hurts just without the melancholy.
