Conrad Standish is/was the half of Melbourne-based Standish/Carlyon that contributed the serpentine bass lines and louche falsetto to their dark, experimental synth pop. A sleek and seductive collaboration that emerged from the rubble of the Devastations, the pair’s debut album—Deleted Scenes—was one of 2013’s most lauded local releases. His latest venture, an abstracted situation entitled CS + Kreme, is a collaboration with Sam Karmel of F ingers and Bum Creek. A four-track 12″ is due out extremely soon—maybe even now—on Total Stasis (LA). They just released their first video, below.
