Collider – Glockster – Video

Collider is a Danish progressive-folk quartet.

From a recent live session the track Glockster surfaced, which articulates of their breadth of influences and abilities to turn those ideas in to complex compositions which hold the audience enthralled.

Jazz, blends in to gaze, only for angles of maths-rock to spike the curves while becoming creased in to folksy flute yet all allowed to hang in compressed and expanded texturing… Best approached with an open mind and time to hand as in likelihood the listener will find themselves digging the collection of late ’60s and early ’70s LPs in which to reminisce.

The Scarlet Fever – Sea Of Mercury – Video

Earlier this year the Canadian electro-goth quintet The Scarlet Fever were introduced.

Sea Of Mercury, the third of the eleven tracks on the LP Collider is a continuation of the journey, with The Scarlet Fever groping deeper into the entrails finding bloodied hands grasping still beating heart, in a number that slithers from hold as the semi-permeable soundtrack promenades from the speakers in self-confident aloofness.

Rather than becoming disenfranchised the listener stretches arms to gain tenuous grip in frenzied desire to become part of the festooned procession. The Scarlet Fever have the knack of furrowing a path that enraptures the audience in the casually scattered flecks of gold that spill into earshot – to entice further investigation.

The Scarlet Fever underlay their sounds with a brooding presence giving the audience the sense this is best served in a mist shrouded cemetery. The quintet is able to balance along the precipice of pure theatrical showtime and serious material as they provide the ears with expansive palettes of  flamboyance, whilst tethering the compositions in considered resonance.

Swooping guitars travel across the stage akin to a trapeze artist, whilst the vocal acts as compère. To which a fluidity of sensuous synth affords the sounds layers of exploration as the bass firmly anchors the compositions to earthy texture.

The Scarlet Fever have not taken the easy route as their tracks are one of Marmite. Easy to dismiss as crass plastic playthings, or to take to heart as considered challenging constructs.

Evidently, as I have asked you to take the time out of your day to take time to consider the quintet I am one of those who likes Marmite and I hope you do too. Allow that savoury taste to develop in your ears and you will find much to enjoy.

If you are not in England you may be thinking – what is this with ‘Marmite’? A quick internet search will find the answer for you, though it won’t necessarily explain the context of ‘like it or hate it’.
