We love a good juxtaposition, and electronic music duo Port of Est. bring a combination of synthetic sounds and a raw analog style in their latest single “CLASH” which could not have a more fitting title — in the best possible way.
There is something physically present in the drive of the drum beat and the vocals of Hannah Tarkinson. Todd Kitchens brings his talents as both a multi-instrumentalist and producer to the track, which was released on their own record label, Delphinium Music. The lyrics are meditative (making the title, well, clash with the tone) and yet the electronic breakdown creates a complex sonic scape. A bit EDM, a bunch shoegaze, and all around sweet, this track sets up Port of Est. for an exciting future.
The duo’s first single, “Valentine in my Headphones” has a hypnotic video you can watch here. You can also check out their website, Facebook, and SoundCloud pages to keep up with Port of Est. as we await more music.
