"Gorgeous, sumptuous future pop which arrives dripping in synthesised sounds, there are nods towards Depeche Mode here alongside 21st century producers such as Purity Ring." - Clash

Empathy Test was formed in London (UK) in 2013, by childhood friends Isaac Howlett (vocals/songwriting) and Adam Relf (production/composition). The pair captivated listeners around the world with their debut track, Losing Touch. Since then, Empathy Test has self-produced and released three stunning albums: Losing Touch (Remastered) and Safe From Harm in 2017 and Monsters in 2020.
Empathy Test's "big dramatic sound swoons ecstatically between the nostalgic and immediate" (KCRW), earning them comparisons with classic acts such as Depeche Mode and A Flock of Seagulls, as well as modern synth-pop acts like CHVRCHES, Purity Ring and Hurts.
