Last summer we met electronic artist Com Truise via the soothing hiss and nostalgic, luxuriously funky balm of his free Cyanide Sisters EP. We tagged him an “unsigned guy who will soon be signed,” and the Ghostly label quickly made good on that by adding the NJ native to the likes of Gold Panda, SVIIB, Matthew Dear, and Pale Sketcher on their increasingly impressive international roster. Com’s debut LP Galactic Melt is due this summer. Its first single is the wonderfully titled “Cathode Girls,” a romantic beat-jammer binding New Order to Boards Of Canada to all manner of ’80s synth styles. You might hear some likeness in approach to Salva’s “Wake Ups” a few minutes in, too.
These tracks come from the “Fairlight” 7″, recently released as a Melt primer:
