Berlin-based duo Vases is made up of Mitchell Sullivan and Ross Alexander. Their album 17 Vignettes (Cosmic Compositions, 2019) is made up of bright synth pieces.

To my ears, “Vignette 12” is a particularly ambient moment.

I don’t know about Ross, but Mitch is a Kiwi ex-pat. He’s part of a group called Aporia, makes music as Cynthia, and is one of the label bosses of Fantasy Fiction Records, as well as being part of numerous acts. Vases seems to be the most obviously appealing to ambient fans, but if you like this you could dig into other things either member has done.
