The Toxic Avenger Set to Release New LP 6/10 via Ultra Records
Following the release of the Speed remix EP, French DJ/songwriter/producer Simon Delacroix aka The Toxic Avenger has announced the release of his highly anticipated Romance & Cigarettes LP, out June 10 via Ultra Records. Seamlessly blending heavy synth-pop influences and disco-inspired syncopation, the album packed with beats that are just as melodic as they are percussive.
Romance & Cigarettes balances classic rhythms and futurism in a way that few others are able to capture. LP cut "Speed" is a tempo-shifting track accented by unexpected bass drops and the ethereal voice of Ylva Falk. Shimmering keyboards and inventive beats on "Say My Name" set the stage for the smooth pop-vocals by Jose Fontao, commanding listeners to move. "Chase II" is a sonic intergalactic adventure, featuring cosmic effects and that build to an explosive climax. Check out the "Chase II" stream where it premiered with Under The Radar.
