From London, UK, Empathy Test is a smart synth-pop group composed of Isaac Howlett and Adam Relf. Their debut EP ‘Losing Touch’ is out now. This Electronic-pop duo that we believe will blow-up soon enough are producing some pretty amazing tunes, mostly synth driven and already supported by the likes of Amazing Radio, the two britons have known each other forever, since childhood in fact. They soak up anything 80’s infused, and have mentioned Purity Ring, Grimes and Chvrches, as well as classic bands such as Depeche Mode, New Order and The Cure as part of their influences. They have generously given away a cover of Gotye‘s worldwide hit “Somebody I Used To Know” as a free download.

I'm always on the hunt for that new sound. I have amassed a substantial amount of music over the years. My library reflects my eclecticism. I've traveled and lived abroad a fair bit and an avid consumer of culture, from movies, to live concerts.
