Words: Saam Das
Taking their name from an element of 1982 sci-fi classic 'Blade Runner', London twosome Empathy Test similarly hark back to the eighties with their synth-laden style of music - an immersive, enveloping electronic sound. Check out 'Hope For Me', a particular highlight of their recent EP 'Throwing Stones'.
I'd been holding off posting about Empathy Test as I'd pencilled them as one of my tips for 2015, but as we're not bothering with that this year, I figure now's as good a time as any to say nice things. Plus the band are playing tomorrow evening (6th) in London. Have a listen to 'Hope For Me', as well as EP title track 'Throwing Stones' below.
