After two critically acclaimed albums, 2020’s Now Here’s An Echo From Your Future and 2022’s The Rest Is Distraction, and numerous mini-album, EP and single releases, London based innovators Girls In Synthesis will return on May 3rd with their new statement; their third album, Sublimation. Pushing themselves, they have once again broken into new territories, constructing their own world and bringing forward their interpretation of a dark, twisted and angular pop record, with all the intensity of their previous work. Sublimation once again proves Girls In Synthesis to be peerless, and throughout its eleven tracks they dive headfirst into an uneasy, atmospheric and intense world of melody, self-questioning lyrics and combative musical performances.

Girls In Synthesis

Today the band emerge from the darkness once again with new single, Deceit. Following previous single Lights Out, Deceit sees Girls In Synthesis once again shifting into fresh new directions with one of their most hooky, melodic songs yet. That renowned intensity is still very much there, but the melodic, circular guitar figure, from guitarist Jim Cubitt, that drives the song adds a new dimension to the band’s sound. Add to this an almost Latin, bossa nova style snare and tom pattern from drummer Nicole Pinto, and you get an expanded vision from a band that have never followed their contemporaries. Lyrically, however, Deceit delves into the darker aspects of human relationships. 

“It deals with a duplicitous, unhealthy relationship and about your position in it. I think it’s easy to feel misplaced in life, and not know where you stand with other people. People are complicated and sometimes don’t say what they think. Sometimes second-guessing another’s motives is dangerous, but it’s natural to want to resolve issues in those situations.” (bassist and vocalist John Linger)

Girls In Synthesis adopted a radically different approach to making Sublimation compared to previous sessions. Recorded late 2023 at Sick Room Studios in Narborough, Norfolk by Owen Turner, these sessions marked the first time the band had worked with an engineer from the recording process onwards. Typically, in the past, Girls In Synthesis would record and engineer everything themselves and then collaborate on the mix with someone else, but this time they retreated to rural Norfolk and completely absorbed themselves in the isolation and quietness of their surroundings. Booked in for extensive European touring throughout May and June, the band will be adapting their white-heat live show to bring subtlety and clarity to the new songs from Sublimation, losing none of their unique and intense attitude in the process.
