Surfacing today is a demo version of When The Dogs Define Her, the first track to be revealed from the forthcoming album, discovers Iiosh, introduced in early 2016, with a more cinematic wash to the orchestration and given this is merely an unmixed demo signposts an LP of some considerable munificence on its way and as I have more news I will keep you informed.
Nemra is a band which has quickly become a staple on the site and this time around a song, which they have not got around to releasing as a recording and only revealed acoustically as a demo, though known to their live audience was recently captured in live performance – Daisy.

The blending of two synths has the effect of creating music which has a dreamy flow that minds of folding whipped cream in to melted chocolate and the listener finds their mind relaxing in to the luxurious textures of the song, the hazy guitar is stippled by a burbling percussion that gives the track a jazzy underpinning beat while the drifting vocal combinations hypnotise the audience.
Newly out of the blocks and other than this composition there is only a demo version of one other track around, though on the basis of the one fully produced Venetian Blinds and the engaging demo Skylight – a quartet I look forward to hearing more of in the near future.
The single was released as an original plus a remix version (with a guest bassist) and is available on bandcamp. A second remix of the song also surfaced yesterday, though is not on the release.
