Minimal and steeped in steel drums and choral backing vocals, it shows Amber Bain (the brains behind the LÉON project) singing about broken promises.
This is the first we’ve heard from CUBS since her inaugural ‘Anthra’ and ‘Apart’ songs, which we profiled so enthusiastically on Neu five months back. Those Taken By Trees comparisons that we flung at her music still hold, in fact Amber’s never suited the gentle electronica sound as well as this before.
Thanks to Bitzl R for the tip.

Their new album arrives next month!
