Listen: Camp Counselors - "Attean" (ft. Psychic Twin)

Cemeteries mastermind Kyle Reigle has a brand new side project. If the sleek, dream pop stylings of his debut album The Wilderness was up your alley (which it totally should be - it was amazing) then the forthcoming album Huntress under the Camp Counselors moniker should tickle your fancy as well.

Inspired by old sci-fi and horror movie soundtracks, Camp Counselors takes a far more synth-heavy approach to the atmospheric pop Reigle dabbles in. "Attean", the latest track from the upcoming Huntress, sees Reigle pairing up with Psychic Twin's Erin Fein for a rather accessible supernatural-tinged synth-pop jam.

Fein's involvement is a subtle but notable touch providing another bit of coloring to an already modestly arranged textural palette. The two vocals mostly stand apart which is rather unexpected twist in such a collaboration but when they do occasionally interweave it feels properly earned.

It's enough to single-handedly usher in major excitement for Huntress which is slated for release later this month on Reigle's own Snowbeast Records. (Via Portals)
