Scorecard – The Belly Of The Beast

eccentric synth-pop with a modern edge

 

Fresh-faced duo SCORECARD are crafting eccentric synth-pop with a modern edge – a bold new take on nostalgic sounds. Made up of Dom Kirtley (producer) and Jack Stanton (vocals), SCORECARD pull sonic elements from the past and combine them with modern electronica to deliver an endearingly unique statement. Their first self-titled release drops on June 21st digitally; comprised of three killer numbers with captivating melodies and vibrant synth backdrops.

An impressive introduction, SCORECARD’s debut is truly infectious. Jack’s striking vocals and Dom’s intricate production make for an eclectic trip. First up on the EP is ‘THE BELLY OF THE BEAST’ a compelling opener built around an irresistible bass riff – a deep, grim vocal and anxious lyrics contrast with its enticing groove. Moving onto track two, the indie-leaning ‘WANE FROM NOW’ finds punchy, mechanical drums, lively theatrical instrumentation and a singalong chorus that combine to make this track feel both fresh and familiar at once. Last up is ‘LITTLE DO I KNOW’. Although it delivers some of the darkest atmospheric moments of the release – its cold verses make way for a manic, anthemic chorus to close the EP on a giddy high.

Having just moved to London, Jack was on the lookout for collaborators to help perform the music he had been writing at art school. An introduction through a mutual friend lead him to Dom, who was studying Popular Music at Goldsmiths. Their closely aligned creative vision soon found them forming a collaborative duo. Since then, they’ve been steadily refining their combined sound, pairing Jack’s lyrical imagery of mythologised pop-culture adolescence with Dom’s mutated pop productions. This EP is a first glimpse into the meeting point of their two musical identities.
