2020 and Bordello A Parigi are hitting the ground running with new music. Hypnotique is the newly minted moniker of synthesizer star Sergio Mesa (IAMNOTAROBOT) and David Jornet alongside the mellifluous vocals of Maia J. This debut is centred around one very special track, La Pénombre. A steady kick introduces the piece, Maia’s words circling the rumbling rhythms. Vocoder breathes, care of Jornet, steady the percussion before bright and bold keys strike. The optimism of those notes is balanced by the lyrics, heartfelt and pierced with a romance laden lament to produce a simply sublime piece of synth wave. The flip is occupied, in true maxi single style, by the instrumental version. Those incandescent chords take centre stage and are given space to radiant their warmth as snares support in this brilliantly joyful work.
