AVEC SANS have recently been the Record of the Day gig of the day, have a have received public praise from Kylie Minogue’s musical director and have been an iTunes featured artist.
Here’s some of the nice things the press have been saying about HOLD ON C/O the excellent LUCID PR who are covering online PR for the release:
“Full of early promise and surrounded by blogger buzz, it’s easy to see why the duo have drawn comparisons to Chvrches… a talent to keep your eye on.”
‘Distinctly 80′s-flavoured… effervescently poppy.’
The Line Of Best Fit
“Indie music sensations… killer sound.”
“Think simple but sweet electro in the Chvrches mould.”
“Like a lot of the best pop things ever they make smart, straightforward electronic pop with proper choruses.”
“As a duo they’re the total package…a sonic powerhouse.”
“Elegant production, a vocalist with natural poise.”
“Synth-pop is clear-cut in its intentions: to captivate and intrigue with equal measure.”
Having last year caught the attention of the fashion industry when they topped Dolce and Gabbana’s new music end of year list, Avec Sans have now designed a shoe for Swide London in collaboration with high fashion retailer, Farfetch.
Along with acts such as Wolf Gang and Everything Everything, the acts performed live sessions for the brand, wearing their designs:
