DOWNLOAD: Thomas Azier - Red Eyes
Thomas Azier, a bouffanted electropop crooner with a sweet shearling jacket, sounds pretty much like what I assume every artist in Berlin sounds like: super-talented, mechanically brilliant and ice, ice cold. On “Red Eyes,” a musical universe lies breathing below the well calibrated songwriting: a dramatic, ‘80s-inflected vocal range, a deluge of glammy synths and snappy drum pads, a full pop spectrum made of only blacks and grays. Who knew chilly could be this inviting? This guy, whose EP is now online for free.
