Published Apr 10, 2014As previously reported, new Vancouver duo Sur Une Plage are in the midst of rolling out a series of singles that'll make up their first EP. Week two of the project is upon us, and their latest track is an early '80s minded piece of synthpop called "Restaurant."
Feeling something like a Depeche Mode track circa "New Life," the song pulses via a blood-pumping drum machine pulse, and multiple layers of vintage keyboard work from Joshua Wells. Vocalist Colin McKill, meanwhile, uses his vibrato-effected tenor to take stock of what he's lost in life, concluding grimly though tunefully "we know that it's all for naught."
You can dig in to the track's juxtaposition of spritely synths and saddened lyricism down below.
