Footprintz possess the kind of musical magic that seems to be created through some unfathomable chemical reaction, their pop sensibilities perfectly balanced with a mystical sense of kudos. Sounding like Hot Chip in paradise, Hercules in a new Love Affair with a euphoric LCD Soundsystem, ‘Utopia’ is the first step in a great musical journey for this magnetic partnership.
Charming guitar led melodies strung out over blissful poetic lyrics and dreamy synths, ‘Utopia’ is the embodiment of its definition. A captivating blend of pop magic, hatched in a dream and painted in vivid colour, it creates devotion to its musical heart.
It’s elusive partner in crime, ‘Golden Dreams’ is cloaked in mystery and soaked with attraction. Uttering choral cries and apocalyptic echoes, it evokes the thrilling sensations of falling in love.
Steered to the dancefloor by house music king Ewan Pearson, who produced the debut smash album from Delphic, ‘Acolyte’, last year. He breathes melancholic pulses through Utopia’s veins in a heart-rending remix for the small hours.
The second release on the Visionquest label, brought together by the four musketeers: Seth Troxler, Ryan Crosson, Lee Curtiss and Shaun Reeves, illuminates their inspired direction and precise aims to unleash a fresh visionary sonic imprint upon the earth.
Footprintz are the Montreal based duo formed through the dreamy musical decadence of Addy Weitzman and Clarian North, channeling hypnotic euphoria from the constellation Pegasus into kaleidoscopic sunrise floors. Addy, a spontaneously inspired composer, organist, harpsichordist, who’s combined works for choir, orchestra, and deep journeying kpanlogo rhythms, spares no expense in drawing together the necessary strands of soul enhancing song poems. Up-and-coming mad-scientist slash part-time unemployed counterfeiter, Maurice, shunned and despised by his fellow peers and professors for his incoherent musical abominations deemed by tabloid journalists as stunningly unprecedented, continues on his quest to compose. Being the outspoken recluses they are, Addy and Maurice met in the heat of an autumn`s night, deep in the enchanted forests of Montreal by the hands of proscriptive luck.
