Electronic music outfit The Acid are something of an electronic music All-Star group as they consist of Grammy nominated DJ and Producer Adam Freeland, best know for the crossover hit “We Want Your Soul” and haed of Brighton (UK()’s Marine Parade Records; Steve Nalepa, a California-based producer, computer and professor of music technology; and Ry X, a Los Angeles-based Australian artist and producer, whose solo effort Berlin was released to critical applause, and is also half of the act Howling.
But interestingly, the act got it’s start when Ry X and Freeland, who had initially met in Australia several years earlier, ran into each other at a friend’s mutual party. The duo bounded over Ry X’s recent Berlin underground music stint, started hanging out and experimenting with various song ideas, often recording sketches and pieces of songs on their iPhones. And naturally, as they were coming up with song ideas, they realized that they had something interesting. Nalpea was enlisted to further flesh out their song.
“Fame” is the group’s latest single from their forthcoming debut, Liminal consists of trembling, undulating synths, layers of shimmering guitars, subtly rumbling bass, and earnestly sung lyrics sung with a haunting falsetto. Although the song is somewhat downtempo, it manages a slow-burning sensuality.
The recently released official video features the surreal and captivating breakdance-inspired moves of dance troupe, WIFE.
