thomas_Azier_hylas

If you’ve been following us for a long time than you probably already know that we’ve been a long time fan of Berlin’s electro-pop virtuoso, Thomas Azier. We’ve featured several of his songs\videos since this blog started back in 2011. Since, Azier has released two EPs, Haylas 001 and Hylas 002 which combined, feature some of Azier’s most dramatic and innovated productions; Red Eyes, Angelene, Ghostcity and the magnificently epic, Fire Arrow. Recently, Azier announced the release of his long awaited, full-length debut album, Hylas the final installment of the Hylas trilogy. The entire album was written, composed and produced by the 25-year old multi-instrumentalist himself, only assisted by sound designer and co-producer Robin Hunt.

We had the chance to preview the record in its entirety and it’s everything we expected and more. Great story-driven songs, mind-blowing, industrial-tinged productions and Azier’s expansive cinematic vocals. Don’t be surprise to see Hylas on our list of Best Albums of 2014.

Azier will be bringing his live show to New York during Fashion Week, performing at Painted Black’s NYFW show at Irving Plaza on February 13th, w/ Klangkarussel and Stefan Biniak. Get tickets here.

Below are some videos to get you reacquainted with Azier’s beautifully-dark, electropop productions + a preview of the album’s titled-track.

Hylas arrives March 10 via Casablanca Records.

Symphonic electronic-pop artist Thomas Azier has released the new single, “Ghostcity” taken from his forthcoming debut album due out in January 2014.

Recorded in an old Soviet factory,”Ghostcity” is an electro-pop tune with strong synthetic melodies accompanied by pulsing synths that add a futuristic effect to the magnetic track. Like all of his songs “Ghostcity” is composed, written & produced by the 25-year old multi-instrumentalist himself.

‘Ghostcity’ is just another impressive example of how incredibly talented Azier is…and there’s still a lot yet to see and hear from him!

Listen to the track below with some accompanied visuals by ChopChop. An official video for ‘Ghostcity’ arrives in late August.

Thomas Azier – “Fire Arrow” [New single + New EP]

 

We introduced you to the very talented, multi-instrumentalist singer\songwriter Thomas Azier early this year via his incredible single ‘Red Eyes’ (Here)  His Debut EP, Haylas 001 completely took us by surprise.  The dramatic symphonic vocals and masterful production of each track is simply a revelation.

Well, Azier is back with yet another epic and hypnotic electro-pop number called ‘Fire Arrow.’ The song epically begins with an abysmal sonic drone noise that later fades into a melodic pop tune guided by Azier’s powerful echoing vocals. Simply stunning track. Grab a free download below!

‘Fire Arrow’ is taken from Azier’s upcoming, Haylas 002 – EP.

Thomas Azier – Red Eyes [Official Video]

Introducing Berlin based electro-pop artist, Thomas Azier.

After spending the past 4 years tirelessly sharpening his sound, Azier has finally emerged with his debut EP entitled “Hylas 001,” a 4-track symphonic album that showcases the singer precision with sound through story-driven songs and beautifully arranged electro-charged melodies.

“I write so many melodies always end up with too many in the end, resulting in an orgy of melodies; I love that moment when everything comes together and it seems to fit.” – Azier

The 24-year old multi-instrumentalist is now working on his own debut album, which will be following the self produced, “Hylas 001.”

Watch the video for the incredible “Red Eyes” and grab a remix + download a copy of the track “Metropolitan Tribe” below.
