Led Er Est is a duo formed by Shawn O’Sullivan and Sam De La Rosa, who started making music five years ago with a bass guitar, some cheap drum machines and synths. Their influences come from seventies synth-pop, eighties lo-fi electronica and industrial music. After making their debut on Weird in 2009 and releasing several singles on labels like Mannequin and Captured Tracks, they're now signed to Sacred Bones, releasing their new album “ The Diver” on 8th May. Word has it that more than ever before, they have managed to take the thick walls of sound they create on stage with all kinds of equipment, evoking both sci-fi soundtracks and golden age cold-wave, to the studio. As an appetiser we bring you the first advance track off of the LP, “ Kaiyo Maru”, which perfectly matches the description above.
