Upcoming Release: LITTLE CHORDS – Afterlife

March 15, 2012

When we found out Vancouver-based electronic producer TEEN DAZE was starting an ambient-tinged indie-pop side project called LITTLE CHORDS, “excited” wasn’t quite enough of an adjective to justify the sensation we were feeling.

And yet, without any sort of EP or small teaser offering to precede it, the debut LP release from LITTLE CHORDS entitled Afterlife is set to drop as a digital download via Bandcamp on March 20th.

For the most part it’s lighter guitar-fronted ambient-pop fare with synth and percussion accompaniment amid some subtle uber-reverbed vocals.

Combined together, this all sorta screams 80s VANGELIS compositions, but it’s a heck of a lot happier – check it out in-full in the embed below. Start with “Saturday” and title track “Afterlife”… seriously… do it now…

Check out LITTLE CHORDS over on Facebook HERE, or hit up a few free downloads on Bandcamp HERE.
