PATHS - Neoprene
Info: Former member of Belfast band Go Swim (whose music featured on BBC Radio 6, BBC Introducing and 2FM via Dan Hegarty), Jules, has embarked on a new solo project this year under the moniker of PATHS, releasing her debut single, 'Neoprene', which was produced by ASIWYFA's Rory Friers and premiered on Clash last month.
Neoprene is the end result of the polymerization (or foaming) of the chemical chloroprene in to produce synthetic rubber. 'Neoprene' is addictive, the track, not the chemical, and the fast past of the song should be overwhelming but instead it merely makes it incredibly catchy, dance-indie at it's finest, with the right amount of pop thrown in for good measure. The video is also visually very appealing, set in a dimly lit abandoned 50's-era looking swimming-pool, the setting complements the dance-floor mood of the song perfectly. #
I've heard enough from this single to seriously whet my appetite for the next releases from PATHS, and thankfully a further two singles have already been mastered and will be unleashed in the coming weeks, watch this space to hear them. In the meantime, 'Neoprene' has just been remixed by LØTUS who halved the BPM whilst keeping the samples at their original speed, an interesting concoction that works very well.
