Flor And The Sea have “A Candid Lie”
German duo Flor And The Sea (Chaem and Marc Aretz) have just released their brand new single, “A Candid Lie”, their first new material for two years and the first taster of their forthconing EP, “Kings And Queens”. The song is an intense, dark electro-pop track with deep and brooding synths set apart from Chaem’s alternating meaningful vocals overlapped with something sweet and sincere as the end choruses reverberate and recall again and again.
Flor And The Sea tell us that: “‘A Candid Lie’ was only built around three main elements: its loop-like complex beat, its synth hook and its haunting vocal refrain, though there’s so much more to discover between those elements…vocal samples, guitar lines, feedback, additional synth layers and bass modulations, all carefully arranged to give the listener something new to discover with each listen”.
Flor And The Sea made their debut with “Dark Minds” in 2018 and followed this with “Reconnect”. The pair have played live extensively since as well writing new material which is now being made available, finally.
