i2m1 – “Illusion”


i2m1 is the project of Irene Carson and Graham Gale. The duo impresses strongly throughout new album Zoo, streaming in full below. Spanning 20 tracks and ranging in stylistic tone from acoustic-led lushness (“Rusted”) to dazzling synth-pop (“Illusion”) and murky post-punk (“The Glass Bubble”), Zoo is a very fun ride. An immediate standout is “Illusion”, a slice of electronic pop that utilizes Pet Shop Boys’ “My October Symphony”, with serene vocals and a building hook that centers around the track’s opening lines. Nostalgia and creativity merge on the captivating Zoo.
