La Mar, electronic-soul duo from Sydney: Debut Single Release "Anchor"

LA MAR is a two piece from Sydney's south producing music that delves deep into the electronic-soul genre. Combining classic vocals and intricate electronic production, LA MAR’s infectious tracks are becoming something fresh audiences have found instantly able to immerse themselves with.

Fronted by vocalist Dylan Wright, delivering raw emotion that manifests into somber and seductive imagery. With soulful influences, Dylan’s melodies establish a reflective brooding and yet sweetly mellowed atmosphere that draws the listener inside the underpinned electronic production of Andrew Grant; utilizing an array of synthesizer and keyboard sounds to artfully complement the vocals and bring modern edge to the music. A relaxed, down-tempo beat is the undercurrent of LA MAR’s sound and maintains the hints of soul throughout.

LA MAR’s new track ANCHOR marks the debut release for this new project and is the first single to be taken from a forthcoming self-titled EP. Recorded over the past few months the two writers worked in a number of different studios collecting sounds including the songs opening Fender Rhodes chords that have become the foundation for the track. The duo headed to REC Studios for the final mix with Craig Willson (Flume, New Navy, LDRU & Yahtzel). LA MAR performed a showcase at GoodGodSmallClub earlier this year alongside Phebe Starr and Revier, a string of live dates will be announced soon in support of the single.

"A song that mould’s so perfectly together in every way that it becomes a chilling experience when listening." - Stoney Roads
