‘Voyager’, the third single from Us, is the Scottish-Swedish electronic pop duo’s most widescreen film soundtrack moment yet, pairing Leo Josefsson’s urgent synth arpeggios with Andrew Montgomery’s soaring three-octave vocals, taking the listener on a space odyssey to the end of the world.
Here, ex-Geneva singer Andrew and Lowe frontman Leo take inspiration from Jean-Michel Jarre, Yazoo, Jeff Buckley, Underworld, and a broken heart, making ‘Voyager’ an epic synth-pop rave-up that has the narrator trying to escape the gravity of an unhappy past relationship. It’s sad but defiant, dark but uplifting – and it’s an earworm that stays with you once you hear it.
Us play widescreen, beautiful, electronic music that is the dystopian film soundtrack to the end of an affair or a broken dream, combining Leo’s epic wall of synths with Andrew’s unique vocals. ‘Voyager’ is the latest step on a beautiful journey.
