Within the past couple of hours the French synthwave creator You Are Number Six released a new track.
You Are Number Six
Always revealing music wrapped in streams of synthesis which mind of an albatross calmly gliding thermal waves whilst traveling thousands of miles on few wing beats – in Midnight Blue, You Are Number Six releases a track full of mystery and tranquility.
It is the combinations of the melancholic electronics and voice of Théo Lefebvre which always make returning to the creations an absolute delight with their conceptual ambience that always warms the room with their countenance.
From the forthcoming album – Alien – is a roughly three and a half minutes journey of experimentation that demonstrates the combinations of electronics, reed and brass wind instrumentation and drum-kit that forms the structures for their intriguing compositions.
The LP is being released though Denovali (be aware music starts immediately) whose related musicians quite regularly feature.
With players from Italy, England and France – Sonset is a gothic-rock trio.
Apologies to everyone for the delay in featuring CMBR, which has been having around in my in-box for many a day now.
Music by its very nature is not geo-politically bound and somewhat perspicaciously as I type today the 21st – bureaucrats in the UK are debating whether EU citizens already in the UK should be able to stay once the UK leaves the EU or whether people should merely be bargaining chips in negotiations, whilst Sonset provide a ready answer for all to comprehend – without a mix of nationalities there is only febrile isolationism.
There is only one song around by an outfit I look forward to hearing much more from in short-order as the blends of pulsating five string bass and percussion are swept with spiralling synths from which haunting vocal surfaces from the rafters.
Apologies to one and all, this has been sitting around in my email in-box for a little while now.
Their latest release Miss Eden is a three and five sixths of a minutes long track of hypno-trance that revolves through the cortex in a transfixing melting loop which finds its way in to the nervous system and finds the listener moving shoulders and upper torso with the dreamscape and most certainly a track that could stand an extended 12″ version.
With a couple of top-notch tracks behind them Stellarion is a name I would anticipate you will be hearing much more of over the summer not only via the hippest venues and radio stations but also the wider spaces too.
