Essenger is a genius. He truly stands on the cutting edge of electronic music, blending an array of influences for a sound that pays tribute to modern alt rock, EDM, and synthwave. He marks his highly personal songwriting style with striking lyrics, and the result is a singular creative style that opens new possibilities for both retro and future synth music. After releasing with prominent labels such as Seeking Blue and Monstercat, he was offered an album deal with independent synthwave label FiXT Neon in late 2019, which has left me in a state of anticipation and excitement.
To kick off the new partnership, FiXT Neon recently released Essenger’s first single and title track from his upcoming full-length album, ‘After Dark’, and it’s spectacular. Yet again, Essenger provides a mesmerizing vocal performance accompanied by perfectly crafted sounds that lull you into his magical neon world.
This song and album announcement lay the groundwork for additional releases leading up to the full album After Dark in early 2020 that we will keep you up to date on. In the meantime, check out ‘After Dark’ below!
