about

Six years after Solvent's Apples & Synthesizers, the immaculately composed synth-pop opus whose Toronto-based producer came to define the early Ghostly aesthetic. And yet, here we are in 2010, listening to Jason Amm's new single as Solvent, "Loss for Words"--the first taste of Solvent's upcoming full-length Subject to Shift, and a sterling example of what happens when classic pop songwriting meets analogue circuitry. Buzzing synths, crisply understated drum programming, and an air of gentle melancholy--it's as if no time has passed at all. And yet, "Loss for Words" is also a significant step forward for Amm, as his singing has matured into a clear, organic tenor and sweet orchestral sings dominate the song's climax. "Loss for Words" is a robotic ballad with a human heart.

The "Loss for Words" digital single comes packaged with two remixes: Solvent's "CompuRhythm Remix", which pares the song's starry haze down to a minimalist series of blips and clicks; and Berlin producer Vector Lovers' take, which busies up "Loss for Words" synthetic swirl into a club-ready electro track.
