Inspired by the sonic possibilities of synths, the sophistication of modern pop and the sci-fi otherworldliness of Techno, Signer’s fourth album Next We Bring You The Fire merges the dreamy hypnotic sounds of the analog 80′s with the melodic and spatial possibilities of the digital now.
New Zealander Bevan Smith (a.k.a. Signer) cut his teeth in the rave scene of the early 90′s and here he returns to these roots with the maturity of a listener and musician with a wide range of tastes. Amongst the modern sounds (think Arthur Russell and Chain Reaction releases), nods to classic pop melodies and harmonies can be heard. Next We Bring You The Fire is a record with a lot of love and joy.
