Single artwork for “Consciousness Is My Trigger” by Cumquat

Cumquat is a new project from local guy Kevin Sul, one that creates electronic pop songs by experimenting with synths and found noises. “Consciousness Is My Trigger” was premiered on yvynyl last week and if the artwork is any indicator, the goal was to create a catchy, sugary pop song.

And Sul delivers. His layered synths and falsetto vocals land between Vacationer and Autre Ne Veut, with blips of a conversation sample giving the song some paradoxically electronic organic moments. From yvynyl:

“I enjoy music that can mix multiple genres, or even better, take you somewhere new as a listener. For this project, called Cumquat, I’ve tried to abandon as many ‘normal’ instruments as possible to achieve this. The majority of the song is based around manipulated synth sounds, samples and found sounds. At the same time, it is still (hopefully) a catchy pop song.”
