Fables – from the forthcoming EP was itself released as a standalone single on the 1st.

Multilayered textures of synthetics and instrumentation fold through the composition prior to the bruising bass bending the track with waves of distortion with the vocal spearing through the curtains of sound like a lighthouse lamp circling in the darkness.

Shadows Between The Sky

Rumbling around the room like a rodent behind the skirting-boards as the low registers of bass grumble through the floorboards. The musical output holds the listener transfixed as aside from distortion and deep electronic hum surface peals of bells and even an acoustic guitar in the six track album (available on bandcamp).

The closer is Crystalline.

There is a palpable drop in temperature as the dark industrialisation sweeps through the room in their signature sound of ethereal vocal surrounded by oppressive guitar and electro-drums as a majestic synth adds extended brush strokes giving the impression of the soundtrack of Valkyrie transporting the fallen.

From the eleven track album (available on bandcamp) the sixth Chymical Wedding.

Edgar Allan Poets – AmeriKing – Single Review

Edgar Allan Poets is a darkwave duo based in the USA.

Edgar Allan Poets

Within the past few hours Edgar Allan Poets released their latest single Ameriking.

With a lengthy back-catalogue the duo have never lost their intense emotional presence, nor originality, as their music flows through the speakers layered by a dark and brooding cloud which steals in to the marrow-bone of the listener.

Rarely overtly political, though always socially aware, Ameriking reflects of the current realities of the USA with disparate silos failing in anyway to connect with each other or more globally, resulting in lengthening shadows of despondency falling across the visages of the majority.

Though of dark countenance – in Ameriking, Edgar Allan Poets, offer a vague glimmer of collective light were people to come together rather than burrowing every more deeply in to their bunker.

Painted Mirror – Inside Out – Audio

The US darkwave quartet Painted Mirror released their eponymous LP on the 3rd.

Painted Mirror

Painted Mirror

Draw the curtains closed, lay back, with only a flickering candle to play shadows across the room to best engage with the roughly twenty two minutes, six track, album (available on bandcamp).

The baffled soundscape delivered through the ethereal synths provides the backdrop to the dreamy spires of the music as padded sticks which sink luxuriously into the drum-skins give the compositions a darkly contemplative feeling that seeps into the marrow, whilst a dampened, yet ever persistent bass provides the depth of the compositions and delicately counterbalancing this shimmers a gently reverberating guitar with the deeply echoed vocal rounding out a sound that holds the listener in reflective silence.

The LP is a fine introduction to a band about a year in to existence and I am looking to hearing more of Painted Mirror very soon.

The third track, also (almost inevitably) the most uptempo, Inside Out is my pick of the release.
