Probably the most legit 80s synthy-art-pop record this shopkeeper has heard in a while, it's got that noir-with a flash of neon aesthetic, a cold funk but a warming haze, dead-eyed vocals with a romantic sadness behind. Proper.

For those who dig: synthpop, mute records, Kelley Polar and Morgan Geist who both make up this project, Dan Snaith who takes a guest spot along with Junior Boys.

Born from the collective mind of producer Morgan Geist (Storm Queen, Metro Area) and songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Kelley Polar, AU SUISSE is a new project that promises to stake a milestone in both its members' already storied careers. Crafting immersive soundscapes using a patchwork of electro, synthpop, funk and disco, AU SUISSE's self-titled debut album evokes both a
post-rave comedown on a tropical beach and a weekend alone icy chalet, ruminating on life and love. Guest players include friends and labelmates Dan Snaith (Caribou) and Jeremy Greenspan (Junior Boys).

Having met in college in the early '90s and continued to forge a close friendship throughout the years, AU SUISSE is the first time Geist and Polar have set out to gel their creative relationship into its own musical project. But this is no bashed-together collection of random tunes — this is a band, through and through, and Geist and Polar's shared expertise give the album its own indelible identity.
