There are plenty of producers floating around the darker depths of Soundcloud, but very few have a sound quite as defined as ARCHNGL or Haarps. Both of the Russian producers/singers find their sound on the more shadowy end of electronic pop, finding a good balance between the accessible and the challenging. “Lotus” is a great showcase for both of these immensely promising artists, combining catchy synth builds with a darker, haunting edge. It’s both an intense wash of thick atmosphere, and an intriguing tackling of numerous genres.
