"Are You Trending?" and "4AM" by Vessels
Leeds, UK has a storied history in electronic music. One of the best bands of the current generation are Vessels. Comprised of Lee J. Malcolm, Martin Teff, Tim Mitchell, Tom Evans, and Peter Wright, they are quite happy to blow your mind, and quite capable of doing so as well. I first played their new single "Are You Trending?" an hour ago and I am yet suffering the effects of shock and awe. Once you've made an attempt to get your head around that bomb, try the slower building but still sizzling "4AM".
Somewhat surprisingly given their current sound, the band originally played post rock, but with the 2015 release of Dilate, they carved out prime territory in the electronic space.
