On the 14th the Canadian electro-rock duo Jay Draper & The Subterraneans released the AA side single Inside Out / Land Of Anxiety.
There is a depressive sadness to the music which is difficult to specifically identify, though nonetheless the thread holding the two tracks central fulcrum giving the material an almost fatalistic air of hopeless despondency.
This dour mood stands as a stark contrast to the expansive compositional range of the tracks, particularly in my pick of the release Land Of Anxiety, which is laced with soaring gothic arches of synthesis and voice. On listening to the roughly eight and three quarters minutes of the two songs (available on bandcamp) don’t expect a catharsis as, in this release, Jay Draper & The Subterraneans are not attempting to shine a candle out of a dark tunnel, rather reflect of dark, ominous, entrapment.
