Swedish duo Max Elto have released a welcomed follow-up to their debut single 'Backyard Animals' today with the equally infectious and melodious 'Shadow of the Sun', now available on all digital platforms in the U.S. The track is taken from their forthcoming EP titled 'Taped Rai', due for release on January 14, 2014 via Big Beat Records in the U.S.
Hailed by the international taste-making press, their debut track 'Backyard Animals' has been described as an "icy, electronic-based, slow-burner that has touches of The xx's elegant restraint mixed with that typical Scandinavian edge" by Pigeons & Planes, as well as "airy and dreamlike" by the popular blog HillyDilly.com and a "slow-building, minimalist, glacially downbeat electro cut" by VICE Magazine.
The mysterious duo, otherwise known as Alex and Tom, first started out collaborating in the studio in late 2012 and soon realized they had something special to offer. Recently signing with Atlantic Record's imprint Big Beat Records, both tracks from their forthcoming EP prove as a nice taster of what's to come. 'Backyard Animals' and 'Shadow of the Sun' both showcase Tom's unique ability to blend deep-house grooves with complex pop sensibilities, altogether carried by the soulful and melodic voice of Alex. These two talents combine to create the undeniably refreshing -- but altogether classic -- sound of Max Elto.
'Shadow of the Sun' is available on iTunes & Amazon.
'Shadow of the Sun (Original Club Mix)' is available on Beatport.
