San Diego based electronic/synth-pop artist Nicky Venus delivers his debut EP in the shape of “Little Runner”. The 6 song offering blends synthpop, electronica, EDM, new wave and brings to mind mid-80s Depeche Mode with the essence of 70s Bowie meets TV On The Radio and LCD Sound System. The lush, yet minimal arrangements and deeply brooding vocals come across less sinister and more in the vein of a classic crooner visiting the age of Black Celebration with the millennial melt-downs circa Sound of Silver.
My name is Charles Brownstein and I was born in Montreal, Quebec. I presently live in Vancouver, BC.I am a true lover of music, food, books, film, and stand-up comedy. Foremost it is music that I love, that is what drove me to create this site. I confess to liking Duran Duran and the Bee gees in my youth.I prefer In Utero to Nevermind and safe as milk instead of Trout Mask Replica.Northern Transmissions is a Music website that features interviews from musicians and bands we love.
