Identitet is the melancholic-weave project of Marin Milardović from Croatia.
It is rarely that a natural bass vocalist raises their head in the world of independent music. When they do, it is something that is to be cherished and in his LP I which came out earlier on in the month Marin uses his voice wisely; as it cloaks the room in resonating vibrations which echo from wall to wall, surrounding the brooding undertow of instrumentation. Whilst instrumentation is far from being incidental as it provides the context, it does seem a distant secondary focus for the listener.
Not material to listen to on an MP3 playback device as the granularity and delicacy of the compositions are lost in audio compression.
From the album (available on bandcamp), by way of an introduction to a vocalist and musician of highest order – Better Than Me.
Once again, the project is so new, I am unable to offer a website or social media page link to discover more.
The latest track is the just under three and two third minutes Long Shots – which announces itself with repeating scales of electronic-bells akin to a campanologist on an outing to towers anew, prior to dissolving like sugar in a hot cup of coffee and reappearing as the sweetener to the ebb and flow of synths and muted vocal and the listener lays ensconced in the deep pile carpet of the composition which alluringly divides itself in to distinctive chapters.
Within the past four hours Woelosko surfaced with their début track – Camellia.
Whilst many musical entities plot and plan their way to surface with material to fight their way out of the underground, others just spend the summer on the beach enjoying life and creating songs and when the weather turns decide to head inside to turn out what they thought of alongside the bonfires at dusk, delivering material that has more honesty and resonance than any duration of ‘thought process’ in the studio could ever reveal.
So new as a concept Woelosko have nothing else to offer. Word arrives there is more to follow and rest assured, I will aim to keep you abreast.
