Led Er Est

Formed in 2007, the New York trio possesses a dark, cavernous yet tuneful synthwave quality, even resembling Trisomie 21 on tracks like “Port Isabel.” At the same time, however, there are also equal elements of post-punk and a bit of raw pop reminiscent of groups as dissimilar as early Simple Minds (when Led Er Est adopts a more driving sound) and early Human League.
So far they released two albums and a few EPs on various labels. “The Diver” is the title of their recently released second album.
Their track on The Peter Out Wave, “Lonesome XOXO” is taken from the EP “May” (Captured Tracks).
