Motorik kraut-rock, as well as more vibrant 80s synth-soaked influences colour the Guest Singer project, devised by Doncaster’s Jake Cope and comprising Paul Burdett and France Lahmar.

Fixated with the presentation of the self in everyday life, Jake uses debut single New Experience to riff on pseudo-profound bullshit and the way it’s used as a personality crutch on social media.

Do you live by the words on the backdrop, of a well-shot holiday hotspot?” he scathingly asks with the opening line, curtly interrupting the broadcasts of Instagram influencers with a fresh truth.

Surrounding himself with the arpeggiated decay of vintage synths, Guest Singer teamed up with producer Matt Peel (Eagulls, Pulled Apart By Horses, Menace Beach) to realise a vision that is as rich in its melodic geography as it is pointed in its textural delivery. Capable of moments of incredible grandeur, Jake steers his romantically doomy mentality through a landscape of dusky synth lines and jumpy Will Sergeant-esque guitars.
