Operators – “Ecstasy In My House” (Stereogum Premiere)

Operators, Dan Boeckner’s synth-pop band with keyboardist Devojka and Divine Fits bandmate Sam Brown on drums, released EP 1 last summer. Whereas lead single “True” had a swaggering sway to it, the new “Ecstasy In My House” is built on a rippling up-tempo synth part that will make your heart race — and, possibly, your fist pump. Hearing Boeckner’s trademark rock ‘n’ roll howl against an entirely synthetic backdrop is somehow both surreal and totally natural. It’s a far cry from Wolf Parade, but it works. Listen below.

“Ecstasy In My House” is out now on Last Gang in Canada, and an album will follow later this year. In the meantime, get EP 1 here.
