LISTEN: Modulus' Shadow Architects is a surprising Singaporean synthwave enigma

LISTEN: Modulus' Shadow Architects is a surprising Singaporean synthwave enigma

Sometimes randomly searching the Singapore tag on Bandcamp can net you some quality, unheralded finds - and in the case of mysterious Singaporean sythwave act Modulus, we think we've stumbled upon something special here.

There's little to no information on him (or her, or them) online - kind of like the similarly enigmatic darkwave "dungeon synth" outfit Drakar Taso - but Modulus' details or digital footprints matter very little when the music is this good.

Debut release Shadow Architects is made up of two delicious instrumental synth compositions, namely 'Night Transit' and 'Brave New World'. The former inspires images of broody drives down empty, neon-lit streets while the latter is a punchier and eerier number that could conceivably be one of the best video-game tunes we've ever encountered.

Listen to the Modulus' marvelous debut below.
