L’AFFAIRE – “Afterlife”


Saskatoon-based duo L’AFFAIRE authentically capture a wistful vein of ’80s-inspired synth-pop on new track “Afterlife”, which touts melodic wonder and effervescence in its amiable melody and smooth production, which is akin to Ice Choir’s synth-pop fondness. The two members, Ash Lamothe and Billy Tataryn, formed the project this past summer and are already churning out tunes like “Afterlife”, setting up for a very promising trajectory. Tataryn’s vocals flow with precision and an endearingly sweet quality, while Lamothe’s blissful songwriting merges the past with present synth-pop in a way that illuminates. Lush and melodically stimulating, “Afterlife” is a fantastic entry point for L’AFFAIRE.
