Avant Kool has been making some waves in Toronto for his Depeche Mode-indebted electro goth for a little over a year now. The weirdo pop project is on full display in “Efficient Composition,” with reverbed out and distant vocals, and a slow build to an eventually massive arpeggiated bassline and a completely out there synth-solo.
Avant Kool is often releasing snippets like these on his Soundcloud, and is turning into one of Toronto’s more prolific artists. It’s worthwhile listen to the other pieces and following the project’s development. No word on an official release as of yet, but there’s at least an album’s worth of material out there.
