Brilliantly combining the art of sound design with unforgettable songwriting, Montréal-based synth-pop duo Automelodi is led by the inspiring studio engineering and magnetic persona of singer/producer Xavier Paradis. Showcasing his master ability to design infectious rhythms, rich bass lines, and brooding hooks, Automelodi expertly crafts a listlessly romantic aesthetic embodied by Paradis’ dynamic voice and eloquent French lyrics. Founded in 2006, his lengthy discography includes titles under his former moniker Arnaud Lazlaud and collaborations with artists like Liz Wendelbo of Xeno and Oaklander as the duo Liz and László. Paradis further elevated his poignant compositions with the addition of Dillion Steele on guitar in 2015, resulting in a refined focus on color and arrangement that is deeply engaging for both party-goers and analog synth connoisseurs alike. Automelodi has made a lasting impression on the world of avant-garde synth-pop, transcending limitations of genre while creating catchy and compelling art.
