The gorgeous, thick-layered textures of Everything by Electricity‘s new single ‘Place To Call My Own’ is synth pop at its most alluring: a steady pulse, a superglue-melody and an addictive, bitter-sweet taste. While recalling bands such as New Order and M83, the song has an unconventional arrangement that catches you off guard: a percussive beginning that slowly morphs into a grand pop song with a haunting almost contrapuntal singing that fuses into a satisfying whole. It is unusually over seven minutes, providing space for an extended anticipation-building intro and an extended middle eight break.
Singer/songwriter Yulia hails from Siberia and is now based in London. She says of the track: “I wrote this song a long time ago in Siberia, before I moved to London. Initially, I didn’t intend for it to be a track I’d record and ultimately finish – it had just been sitting incomplete in an old lyric book for years. I recently came across the same book and found this unfinished song; it haunted me for days, I couldn’t take my mind off it, so dropped what I was currently working on and brought ‘Place To Call My Own’ to life.”.
The track is available now though the usual online sources.
