We’re delighted to be working with Avec Sans for the first time!


Following the release of their iTunes-charting debut album, Heartbreak Hi, in July 2016, London-based duo Avec Sans release their Hype-Machine-topping rework of Bon Iver track Perth.

The band’s album is a truly instantaneous record and fuses their distinctive electro-pop sound with the relatable narratives that they are quickly becoming recognised for. Anchored by tapping electronic instrumentation, their 13-track offering features standout tracks Shiver, Resonate, When You Go and Perth, which comes to life in this stand-out electronic rendering.

2015 saw Avec Sans turn heads, touring internationally and playing live events for BBC Introducing, appearing on lineups alongside world-class artists such as The Pet Shop Boys, Example and Gorgon City, and at events that include The Great Escape, Sounds from the Other City, Kendal Calling, CMJ and Canadian Music Week.

2016 has seen the band grace the stages of SXSW, Cannes Lions and tour in support of Ladyhawke. They’ve also received a raft of outstanding national press coverage.
