Brooklyn band Corbu preview new EP with ‘Neon Hallway’

Skittering synth number is a standout from a glistening new release.

A couple of weeks back, Corbu’s ‘Neon Hallway’ sneaked onto the airwaves, gaining its first play on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show. This guy deals in superlatives, it’s his chosen for of expression, but when he calls this track one of his songs of the year, it’s worth taking notice.

‘Neon Hallway’’s the kind of track that sweeps up the conscience in a matter of seconds. Initially a bare bones synth number, it eventually takes off into curious, space age territory, with skittering synth parts overlapping in a barely-restrained frenzy. The project primarily of Jonathan Graves, it’s his vocals that ascend this ambitious piece into an all-out pop effort. Think Field Music tackling giddy Everything Everything gadget wizardry and you’re about halfway there.

The track’s taken from the Brooklyn five-piece’s new EP ‘Everything You Imagine Is Real’, out 5th October via 3Beat. DIY’s got the premiere - stream it below.
