A Doorway to Atmospheric Nostalgia

Picture standing at a doorway, enveloped by the atmospheric and wistful sounds of The Formalist’s ‘Happenstance.’ The distant echoes of pop music, layered with a deep, throbbing beat, create an enigmatic aura that captivates from the first note. Formed in 2006 by Stephen Krieger and Erik Laroi, The Formalist has become a unique fusion of ambient and experimental elements, where Laroi’s melodic sensibilities meet Krieger’s encircling experimentations.

The single serves as a gateway to The Formalist’s sonic realm, where genres blur and collide. ‘Happenstance’ challenges the conventions of electropop, infusing the track with a captivating energy that resonates with the sardonic undertones of Laroi’s lyrics. The duo’s harmonious clash of influences, drawing inspiration from both the turn of the Millennium and contemporary artists, creates an undulating soundscape that defies expectations. As the lead single for their upcoming album, ‘Happenstance’ sets a stage that promises an unparalleled auditory experience, merging the human and digital realms in a way that is both edgy and utterly enticing.
