Crack in the Road

YESSSS!! I cannot tell you just how long I’ve been waiting for this song, and it doesn’t disappoint.

Since discovering London duo Avec Sans via a bandcamp trawl a couple of months back, with their audacious debut track Perth (a cover of Bon Iver), turning a melancholic song into an indie disco anthem. Heartbreak Hi is a gorgeous slice of upbeat synth pop, complete with singalong chorus and sickly sweet hook. Could Avec Sans be the UK’s answer to Purity Ring? Quite possibly.
