Empathy Test is London-based electronic music duo Isaac Howlett (vocals) and Adam Relf (production). Following the success of ‘Seeing Stars’ and ‘By My Side’, Empathy Test are now set to drop new single ‘Walk Right Out’, the B-side to their latest single ‘Bare My Soul’. ‘Walk Right Out’ showcases a more stripped down, natural sound than the synth-heavy Empathy Test we are used to. Underpinned with swelling strings and piano stabs that wouldn’t sound amiss on a Joshua Tree-era U2 track, ‘Walk Right Out’ is carried along by stuttering drums and twinkling arpeggios.
“Walk Right Out’ is about domestic violence and how it effects a home. It’s about rising above suffering – “think happy thoughts and let it go” – and of course, getting out of a negative situation.” – Empathy Test
Deep in sentimental lyric content and effortlessly rich electro-pop structures, Empathy Test have entered more brooding territory but still match their style from their past records without hesitance. Scheduled to arrive on the 21st April, their previous single ‘Bare My Soul’ kicked off a PledgeMusic campaign to fund the self-release of Empathy Test’s debut album on the 23rd June.
