"Vancouver’s Rococode genuinely captivate with their singular musical aesthetic, an infectious marriage of classical synth-pop, quasi-hip-hop beats, layered
with male-female ideological dichotomy.”
Vancouver, BC – Vancouver’s Rococode inject hook-laden songs with lush synth textures and duet vocals, resulting in an infectious sound. Today, the duo of Andrew Braun and Laura Smith releases the Young OnesEP, which debuted earlier this week at Blackbook.
Co-produced by Caleb Shreve (Phantogram, Bear Hands, Tegan and Sara) and Jon Siebels (Eve 6, Switchfoot, Dreamers), the six song set highlights a musical chemistry by fusing Braun’s exploratory tendencies with Smith’s razor-sharp pop sensibilities.
The fuzzy low end of “A Love That You Will Never Know” is dark and menacing, yet the cloudburst chorus is pure sunshine, while the swaggering title cut centers on an unforgettable wordless chorus.
But it's standout single “Is It Real”, set with acoustic strums against euphoric, pitch-bent synths, that ties it all together with Earmilk saying, "Filled with the duo's signature lush beats, layers of ethereal synths, and detached boy/girl vocals, 'Is It Real' is the perfect example of Laura Smith and Andrew Braun's knack for stripped down electronic pop."
