Los Angeles-based Carol Rhyu, aka White Blush, makes some of the best synth pop nowadays. Her reverb-drenched vocals and dreamy synths have a certain intoxication to them, something that makes her music so addictive and emotional. The aptly-titled “Ether” follows this even more so than usual, creating an even more haunting mood, reminiscing at points the best shoegaze bands. It’s one for headphones and hiding under the covers.
The new White Blush EP is called Loves Park, and it’s available as a free/name-your price download on bandcamp. Stream “Ether” and other recommended track “Summer” below:
