Empathy Test

Empathy Test press shot
If there was an actual empathy test other than in the dystopian future of Blade Runner, then the new double A side single: Demons/Seeing Stars, by London based electro popsters of the same name passes with flying colours. 

The soon-to-be released Empathy Test track Demons shines bright in the musical firmament as they explore the nature of jealousy in the human condition. It's available on September 9th and is a precursor to their much vaunted and eagerly awaited debut album.

It's swirling synths and infectious beats create an understated anthemic electro soundscape and Empathy Test further lure the listener in with a cleverly written web of evocative lyrics that tells of passion and infatuation.

“and now she wakes up, every day and she invites, all of my demons to play.”

Isaac Howlett and Adam Relf formed Empathy Test after discovering a mutual love of eighties sci-fi soundtracks, nineties guitar bands and underground dance music. With echoes of CHVRCHES and Purity Ring, their sound has been described as Future Pop, Dark Wave and numerous other variations along similar themes.
