If you are not a fan of electronica, listen to Rendezvous – you might just change your mind.
The genre “electronica” immediately conjures memories of synth clanging against inorganic drum loops. But before you settle on your hunches, open your mind a little bit more to something new. After all, the new electropop band Rendezvous has given electronica a new face.
Itai Simon and Hagai Izenberg joined their heads together to come up with a brilliant, fresh, and versatile sound. Forming the two-man band Rendezvous, they produce electropop-infused tracks that give a strong hint of acid jazz.
Rendezvous gives its songs a more personal, less boxed-up feel. By fusing sixties music with modern electropop, Rendezvous has achieved a singular feat: they gave people a new reason to celebrate electronica.
“So What” is a song that reminds you of skipping steps and lighthearted fancies. “No Man’s Land”, a heavier, more somber track, is almost an instrumental tribute to earnestness. “Incognito” is another song by Rendezvous that allows a moderate reminiscence of past emotions. All three songs give tasteful spurts of instruments both old and new, a true amalgam of the present and the past.
After launching their first EP, Rendezvous became a huge success. They gained thousands of fans from all over the world, earning the attention of music giant Dave Bascombe, a talented mixer/ producer who has teamed up with prominent bands like Tears for Fears and Depeche Mode. Now sharing his musical wit with Rendezvous, he and the band are working on the very first Rendezvous album.
Highly experimental yet well-grounded, Rendezvous transcends the genre of electropop. Izenberg and Simon have discovered novel ways to uncover unknown facets of electro, widening the horizon for modern pop. The world shall whisper about them until their first album breaks the silence.
