If you’ve never come across Madrid while searching for electronic bands in the vein of Boards of Canada or Air, then here’s your introduction. Meet Duncan Christie and Adam Perry, the main songwriters behind the Toronto based group. Its been a couple years since their last release (Warm Waters), the band has now readied a new EP (First Message), a new video (see below) and a little bit of buzz to get things going again. Recently, the band played opening slots for Ulrich Schnauss and UNKLE.
Off the new EP, check out an Ulrich Schnauss remix of Out To Sea. But before I finish, let me point you towards my favorite Madrid song, Crystallic. Look for it on the bands’ full-length next year.
If you live in Toronto, put this show on the calendar. Should be a great one.
