Somewhere deep in the fuzzy vocals and gentle percussion of Chad Valley there is a melancholy sweetness in the tone of vocalist and creator, Hugo Manuel. On “Now That I’m Real (How Does It Feel)” Manuel sings “The time to feel is the time I need to dwell.” The chamber style vocals barely raise themselves over the bright synth notes, as though Manuel is mumbling his inner thoughts.
We found Equatorial Ultravox to be a refreshing style of synth pop, but spoke with some of readers about their thoughts, only to learn they felt the projects were “unfinished.” What do you think?
