Mint Julep – Broken Devotion

Here Keith Kenniff (whose solo record as Helios was one of my favourites last year) pairs up with his wife, Hollie, on vocals for some gorgeous electro pop. I find Keith Kenniff’s work quite compelling – he just seems to have perfect judgement in production and a very musical ear for melody and harmony. This album is much more energetic than his tranquil Helios material, with some driving tempos and quite thick, almost shoegaze-y synths.
