Adventure's Lesser Known tricks

Post Author:

This past Friday I was pleasantly reminded of Benny Boeldt’s newest album Lesser Known when I stumbled onto his new video for the satisfyingly tragic “Rio.” The surprisingly successful vocals from the typically silent Boeldt complement the screeching synth and pulsing beats perfectly, allowing the track to develop a welcomed sound that is remarkably similar to other Wham City artists – Videohippos and Future Islands come to mind. All in all, “Rio” is both a refreshing and needed step away from Adventure’s chip-tune roots. And though it pains me to say this, Pitchfork is spot-on in their comparison to New Order. This track is most certainly a euphoric escape. Check out the video for “Rio” below.
