VeryRecords’ Reed & Caroline announce New York show ahead of Erasure support tour

Vince Clarke’s VeryRecords is pleased to announce that Reed & Caroline will be playing an intimate show at New York’s Pianos on May 24 2018 ahead of joining Erasure for their North American summer tour which kicks off in Miami on July 6. (This means a synth duo supporting a synth duo. Which has possibly never happened before in the history of synth duos*.)

The tour follows Reed Hays and Caroline Schutz’s critically-acclaimed 2016 debut album for VeryRecords, ‘Buchla & Singing’, and their appearance on the BBC World Service Arts Hour in March of this year.

“Caroline and I are both ridiculously excited,” admits Hays. “Vince just casually dropped the idea of supporting Erasure into conversation last year. He said ‘You might need to start writing new songs for the tour.’ I had no idea what he was talking about at first.”

* Unverified and possibly veryfalse VeryRecords claim.

Praise for ‘Buchla & Singing’

“Addictive electro sounds.” – Louder Than War

“‘Buchla & Singing’ is synth pop for geeks.” – GeekDad

“The fact that Reed & Caroline have managed to make such an interesting and enjoyable album using only an ancient and difficult to master modular synth system says much about their ability. Whilst the album title is literally correct, both come together in perfect harmony, producing excellent results.” – Almost Predictable Almost

English Electric Tour Photo

As we approach a year on from the sudden end to the English Electric tour we thought that we should celebrate Malcolm’s continuing improvement by reminding ourselves of how great last year was. 

Here is the whole band on stage at Tempodrome Berlin, May 24th. Many thanks to Karen Buxton for the photo.

‘Interplay somehow walks the tightrope between experimental electronica, the pop of synth groups such as Depeche Mode and the disciplined Krautrock of Neu!. Foxx is still
sounding relevant.’ **** ARTROCKER

‘One of the finest electronic records you’ll hear in 2011.’ THE QUIETUS

‘Meeting of synth-fetishists is a triumph.’ **** MOJO

‘In the fourth decade of his career, Foxx has released an album which easily equals the high points of his rich back catalogue.’ BBC MUSIC

‘One of the most enlightened synth records in years.’ **** THE STOOL PIGEON
