Portrayal is a guitar/electronic duo from Shrewsbury, UK. Rob Tranter and Joe Crook have been friends for years but didn't actually start recording music together until recently when the two bands they were in came to an end, and they set out with the intention of writing an album as a duo. They mix up rock and electronica with hints of other styles such as shoegaze and post punk, whilst keeping a focus on melody and structure. Their debut album To the Black Sea is out now on iTunes and Bandcamp. The marvellous song featured in "Wide Awake" is Lost Souls. Follow them on Twitter and Facebook.
