Erasure "Elevation"

Erasure "Elevation"
Long-running UK synth-pop act Erasure first gave word back in May that their follow-up to last year's Christmas-themed Snow Globe, The Violet Flame, would be dropping August 23 in North America and a day earlier overseas via Mute. Now, the electronic two-piece have unveiled their lead single from the disc. Listen to the duo's soaring new song "Elevation" at the bottom of the page.

Continuing the British outfit's track record of delivering consistently boisterous and buoyant beats, "Elevation" finds Vincent Clarke and Andy Bell toying with Ibiza-ready drum fills, vintage synths and romantic vocals to create a hook-laden number that recalls the crystalline production and atmosphere of late '90s electronica.

Hear for yourself by listening to "Elevation" in the player below, which you can find underneath the duo's upcoming tour itinerary.
