We stumbled upon Belfast electro-pop trio LORIS as we were investigating the terrific-as-ever line up for The Great Escape, and while they just missed out on our festival ones to watch, their latest track means that we'll be doing our utmost to check them out in Brighton. Listen to the pulsating 'Crazy' below.
The combination of electronic sound and female vocal leads to easy/lazy/inevitable comparisons to Purity Ring and Young Wonder. What makes LORIS stand out in particular is the addition of an RnB infusion, which is mixed in with a dream-pop intro on the 'Crazy' before the electronica gets turned up to 11. A boiling pot of hypnotic sounds.
