The only time we’ve ever covered London-based Avec Sans was for their cover of Bon Iver’s “Perth.” It was one of the more original we’d heard, heavy on synth (with just a splash of darkness).
“The Answer” is the second original single to be released by the band (I missed the first, otherwise I’d have known what to expect). Turns out they sound a bit like Tegan and Sara, with all the modern synthwave flare of Haerts and/or Kopps.
The track definitely demonstrates that the group hold big promise for the future. I don’t think they’ll necessarily “break out” on a large scale any time soon, but I expect that quite a number of blogs will be picking this up.
