More than most, Jason Amm’s work as Solvent embodies the original ethos of the oft-misused “synth-pop” tag: that is, pop music built lovingly, reverently, meticulously out of the buzz and hum of analogue synthesizers. Solvent’s newest full-length on Ghostly International—his first in nearly six years—is called Subject to Shift, and its title reflects the changing tone of Amm’s music. On Subject to Shift, the “cute, happy robots” of 2004’s Apples & Synthesizers are few and far between, and in their place is a mix of dystopian, acid-tinged futurism and bittersweet romantic ache. “Loss for Words", the first single from Subject to Shift, arrives on April 20th on Ghostly International. “Loss for Words” is a sterling example of what happens when classic pop songwriting meets analogue circuitry, boasting buzzing synths, crisply understated drum programming, and an air of gentle melancholy. the track is also a significant step forward for Amm, as his singing has matured into a clear, organic tenor and sweet orchestral sings dominate the song’s climax. “Loss for Words” is a robotic ballad with a human heart.
