Track: Empathy Test’s Isaac Howlett releases debut solo single ‘House of Cards’ – a shimmering crystalline shard of pure pop, with tour ahead.

Empathy Test have always delivered a delicious eighties infused brand of synth pop that has seen them garnered a massive following. Now, enigmatic frontman Isaac Howlett has released his debut solo single ‘House of Cards’, and it is an epic, cinematic track that positively shimmers with a glacial edge. Celestial synths etch the horizons above Howlett’s yearning vocals, delivering a bittersweet melody: electronic pop at its most immersive best.

At heart is the soaring chorus and the stabbing synths that creates a thunderous attack – Pet Shop Boys meeting Cabaret Voltaire for modern times. Beneath the bright tones lies a darker theme – the song is about confronting the brutal reality but eventual relief of escaping a toxic relationship:
