Regularly putting out new material which is of varied soundscape though always of commonality is a sadness that envelopes the listener.

The most recent track – Thumb (available on bandcamp) – is a morose dystopian scratchy composition which is made more bleak by the dour vocal and self-doubting lyric that is underscored by a monotone drum beat which gives the track its menacing countenance.

There is a palpable sadness that encases the room on hitting play as the piped synthetics mark the entrance of deeply textured electronica and floating lyric that weaves in to the mind.

King Catcher – The One Who Makes It Real – Audio

The English downtempo duo King Catcher revealed their latest track within the past hour.

King Catcher - The One Who Makes It Real

King Catcher

A very different pulse emerges from the speakers in The One Who Makes It Real as King Catcher move away from their more familiar nu-disco soundtrack.

There is a sadness to the song with the minor chords of piano playing quietly as the backdrop of slowly pacing electronica and melancholic vocal in a track that has a retrospective sense of ’70s US mellow-rock in the flow.

Voluptas Mors

Innocence is an eight track album (available on bandcamp) full of many different flavours with two alternating voices.

The commonality of theme being the mildest of hints of jazz wrapped inside slowly paced emotive structures containing various electronics and instrumentation with the selected vocalist, adding their own distinctive layering.

My selection from the album is the the fourth, The Day I Die which features Veela as the singer.
