Gardland do outback techno on “Syndrome Syndrome”

Get a taste for the Australian duo’s forthcoming LP for RVNG Intl with the ‘official video’ for the title track.

Due for release next month, Syndrome Syndrome presents the pairing of Alex Murray and Mark Smith as intriguing additions to the RVNG roster that has provided plenty of excellent full length listening this year. Gardland’s self-styled “elegantly wasted” approach to electronic music clearly manifests itself in a sense of unease if the five minutes of “Syndrome Syndrome” are any real indicator; disorientated tribal drumming spars with swathes of streamlined drones before scratching percussive textures give the track a sense of forward direction as Gardland lead you towards a swelling sense of sonic chaos.
