Com Truise is one of the many personas of producer and designer Seth Haley, born and raised in upstate New York and operating out of a 12′-overrun apartment in Princeton, New Jersey. An admitted synth obsessive, Com Truise is the maker of an experimental and bottom heavy style he calls “mid-fi synth-wave, slow-motion funk”. Haley’s been making music on the side for roughly a decade—going through pseudonyms like toothbrushes (Sarin Sunday, SYSTM, Airliner)—first as a DJ, and currently, as an excavator of softer, window-fogging synth-wave.
From meeting in Brooklyn in 2011; Davey Partain and Chuck Flores soon became fast accomplices in what soon became Aeon Rings. Melody and intensity are the primary factors that set the mood for Aeon Rings outstanding live performances with imagery reminiscent of Blade Runner, Tron, and the soundscapes to match. All while giving a big nod to sounds that reflect Clan of xymox, Depeche mode as well as Ladytron and other electronic pioneers. With a seamless blend of hooks, melodies and dark intensity. They’ve been welcomed by a vast range of audiences.
Kodacrome is Elissa Pociask (keys, vocals) and Ryan Casey (drums, electronics). Elissa designs energetic, interwoven pop melodies with haphazard structures, layered vocals, and mean lyrics. Ryan builds rich, textured soundscapes which can fall anywhere in between delicate and grimy. By means of a very natural spirit of teamwork, the two form thoughtfully crafted pieces, easy on the head and heavy on the pretty.
