Avec Sans are Alice Fox and Jack St James, a London-based duo originally from Manchester and Trinidad respectively. They perform Electro Synth Pop tracks which are highly contagious. Since I witnessed them support Mausi in September I was literally hooked on what I was hearing.
Above is the official music video for Shiver which was directed by Sing J Lee (PINS/ Chvrches) and this song is a right cracker. You never would of expected this but it is in fact a fun Pop song about death and it is a tune which completely captivates me. I actually find this rather dreamy and Alice’s vocals entrance me. Both lyrics and melody mesh together to form something truly amazing.
Shiver is a right blinder and it is a song that you could have a good dance to. It actually reminded me of the band Chvrches in parts. Now this is a duo you need to see for yourself. I see plenty of promise and they have been gaining plenty of positive press.
If you want to witness Avec Sans for yourself then they are supporting the amazing Little Boots at Heaven on 28th November 2013. If you have a ticket you are in for a treat. If not then snap one up over at http://www.gigsandtours.com.
Shiver is released by Little World Recordings on 2nd December 2013 and if you go over to the bands Facebook page then you can download it for free for a limited time.
