Chillwave producer Com Truise continues to transport audiences to the retro-future with his arpeggiated-synth landscapes and analog beats. Lush electro tracks like "Sundriped" and "Futureworld" evoke the soundtracks of the best '80s dystopian flicks, but Truise keeps his concerts firmly in the present with a live drummer and guitar player. Whether he's performing early favorites like "Cyanide Sisters" and "Brokendate" or dropping remixes of Neon Indian and Twin Shadow, Truise's deft electronic manipulations and ear for the groove always keep audiences moving at his immersive live shows.
New York-born Seth Haley, a.k.a. Com Truise, worked as an art director and moonlighted as a drum and bass DJ before resigning from his job to pursue music. He made his debut as Com Truise in 2010 with the Cyanide Sisters EP, a glittering slice of chillwave that established him as one of the budding genre's most promising new acts. Critics raved about Galactic Melt, his 2011 debut album, resulting in extensive touring alongside acts like Mount Kimbie and SBTRKT. In 2013 he released a collection of early demos titled In Decay before once again hitting the road for a series of high-profile festival appearances. A skilled circuit bender with an arsenal of the most coveted vintage synths around, Com Truise continues to conjure up the sounds of both the '80s and the future on his electrifying tours.
