Hartford-based Pushing Static is the anthemic synthpop project of musician Asher Condit. Earlier this summer, Pushing Static released its newest EP, Synthetique.
Like 2015’s Even Fireworks EP, Synthetique is an intricately technicolor collection of invigorated and optimistic pocket anthems. Throughout its relatively brief runtime, the EP offers a fair amount of diversity in is songwriting. Opener “Ms Polyester” is sleek and nocturnal, centered around a club ready beat and dynamic vocal shifts. “Stargazing” takes the wide-eyed optimism of “Even Fireworks” and magnifies it to IMAX visual levels. The latter two tracks “Please Tell Me” and “Starry Eyed” take a more minimal approach, fully appreciating pop influences and bending genres around Condit’s elastic tenor.
