After the release of their impressive debut album “Touch” Melbourne synth-pop duo GL are back with a new double-A side single “Destiny/Reflect”.

They are quoted saying, it’s a track about “looking for the positives and finding happiness in those around us.” Sit back and turn this up loud on your next sun soaked afternoon and enjoy!

The wonky producer recently shared news of a new album in the works, expected to be out this fall. Judging from already-released tracks from this year like “Sheep” and “Vanity”, it looks like the soundscape continues into stranger territory.
