US dance music duo syence have unveiled their new 5-track EP bass pop, out now on all streaming platforms.
An exploration into the self-styled genre of music that the record is named after, bass pop captures the essence of the syence sound. Epitomizing this is opener "truth", a vibrant, emotionally charged jam featuring an alluring sax line and the vocals of California artist Kyle Reynolds, who has had a striking series of recent works including"Best Is Yet To Come" with Gryffin, and "Drifting Away"with Autograf.
The five-track release also features three tracks that have been released as singles across the year, starting with "talking way too much", a vibrant combination of glistening synths, euphoric bass energy and seductive vocals. Then there is the poignant, dynamic percussion of "hate me like you love me", which also features the vocals of Nashville singer-songwriter Jake Neumar, and the punchy romance of "think about u". Closing things out, the sombre "meet somebody" ensures the melancholic energy permeates bass pop right to the end.
First meeting in a college science class, Zach Montoya and Brayden James were brought together by a shared love of live music and production. Soon they decided to form syence, experimenting together and pioneering a sound they describe as bass pop. Returning to the 2021 live event space in full force, syence played the acclaimed Beyond Wonderland at The Gorge Amphitheatre this past August, and are slated for upcoming sets at HiJinx festival in Philadelphia as well Countdown NYE festival in Southern California to ring in the new year. Furthermore, notable recent tour dates include playing alongside Two Friends for three nights across Connecticut and Massachusetts in June, alongside Whethan in Cleveland this September, and alongside Zedd in Boston during Labor Day Weekend.
Their largest and most diverse body of work to date, the bass pop EP is a landmark release in the story of syence.
