First Glances – SCENIUS

First Glances – SCENIUS

SCENIUS Release their debut single ‘Glass Rain’ on 28th Feb. The band draws inspiration from the early electro-pop outfits – both pre-punk (Kraftwerk, Brian Eno…) and post-punk (New Order, Depeche Mode …), through to contemporary bands (LCD Soundsystem and Boards Of Canada) – to pursue in their own way the same thrilling mission: make vintage synths and rhythm machines sound soulful, touching and catchy. I’m also put in mind of mid-period Wire and Cabaret Voltaire.

The band is a cross-channel project, composed of UK producer Steve Whitfield (The Cure/Jane Weaver), based in Leeds, (music) and Fabrice Nau (vocal parts and lyrics), based in Angers, France.

The single, ‘Glass Rain’ will be available on all major online platforms. With a further three singles to come over the spring/summer and then followed by the album.
