Agar Agar – The Dog and the Future

October 2

After meeting at fine art college, Clara Cappagli and Armand Bultheel quickly bonded over their shared love of trance music, and began writing music together as Agar Agar, leading to the release of their breakout 2016 EP ‘Cardan’. Since then, they’ve built a dedicated fanbase through their distinctive sound and impassioned live shows, and they’ve consolidated this ascendance on their debut full-length album ‘The Dog and the Future’. Singer Clara Cappagli’s delicate vocals flits over sultry, down-tempo disco beats, progressing from their established dancefloor territory into darker introspective themes as her lyrics tackle ideas of virtual reality and simulated life. Sonically, the album is filled with fat, squelching synths and booming drum machines, condensing the murky energy of classic techno and electro to build a mysterious after-hours atmosphere driven through by indie pop structures and melodies. From brooding opener “Made” to standout tracks like the sinister “Fangs Out” and irresistible hit “Lunatic Fight Jungle”, the record is filled with unique gems, marking the body of work with a depth that underlines the development of this truly original act.
