Marita Ryan from Melbourne delivers her self-produced indie-pop electronica music as Symmetrix.
With guitars, keyboards and programmed beats, she hits a mid-ground between her chosen genres, erring more towards the alt.pop-rock end of the spectrum (the crackling Confide, the snippy pop-rock of The Others with precision guitar passages) in songs which are snappy and self-contained.
Her vocals are usefully taut and anxious which suits the brittle nature of her sound and lyrics of disappointment and lost love . . . alongside more upbeat concerns.
Not a lot of new ground broken here but when the pop and electronica close ranks there are more than enough to be convincing.
One to listen up for.
