Void Comp – “Come My Way”

A striking debut single from Void Comp, “Come My Way” dazzles with its late-night synth atmospherics, fondly reminiscent of Junior Boys. The project of Canadian multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter David Jule, Void Comp shows a convincing sound steeped in synth-forward atmosphere. Delicate synth pulses and gentle vocals lead an intriguing first minute. “Until you come my way,” Jule sings thereafter, the synths escalating gradually into a second-half frenzy, kick-started by the eerie bridge around 02:30. “Come My Way” hits all the right marks; Void Comp is definitely a project I’ll be anticipating future releases from.

Jule elaborates further on his track below:

Written whilst in a state of limbo in late 2020, having been let go from a job due to covid and after the end of a relationship, this song came together relatively quickly. Composed mainly using my Prophet 08 synth, it features spacious synths with searing leads, growling bass, heavy electronic drums and floaty, ethereal vocals. Through the lyrics I try to convey the sense of confusion and anxiety I felt at the time. It was entirely written, recorded, performed and mixed by myself in my bedroom.

“Come My Way” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of August 2021’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Electronic.
