Folk and electronica have always been pretty distinctly separate genres, but in recent years, the two have become more and more intertwined. In this case, we see a traditionally folk singer delving into a more experimental realm, and the results are absolutely stunning.
The Acid is a three piece group, with the lead vocals provided by none other than the beloved singer-songwriter RY X, who we here have grown to love. When you combine his capabilities with some atmospheric, yet dance-able, electronic beats, you get what is the lead single off The Acid's debut album, "Fame". It's quite the groovy earworm, resonating along the lines of Bon Iver or The xx.
Their debut album, Liminal, is out now, and can be streamed from Soundcloud here.
