The haunting otherworldly track fills the room with layers of luxurious texture in which the listener is cosseted by the soft fabrics of interlacing electronica while a spectral vocal whispers in to the ears from afar.

I Ya Toyah – Glass Eyes – Audio

The Chicago (USA) based industrial-IDM project of Ania Tarnowska – performing as I Ya Toyah – releases the LP Code Blue on the 26th.

I Ya Toyah

I Ya Toyah

A roughly thirty eight minutes, ten track, album of darkly oppressive music that slams through the speakers in powerful waves, that wraps around the listener like drying wet leather bonds. Glitchy electronica and pulsing pressurised synthesised guitar create the dark presence through which looms a soaring and aloof vocal that affords the compositions their dramatic dynamics.

An LP well worth catching on its release – Glass Eyes, the antepenultimate track, was released as a standalone single on the 28th of September and is available on bandcamp.

There is an alluring fragility to the compositions which have a quiet melancholia that folds around the listener in saddened threads of instrumentation and fractured vocal.

The nine track album (available on bandcamp) is best approached in full setting to allow the tear-stained songs to build their layers of emotional intensity which envelop the mind.

City Girl, the fourth track, being my highlight of the LP.

Winter - Zoey

Winter

A couple of tracks have surfaced from the album (which is available on bandcamp) in advance of its release. The most recent Zoey, the third of the ten songs, came to light a few hours ago.

Zoey – floats through the room like a hazy mirage as the dreamy vocal is borne on a soft bedding of echoing guitar and the listener finds themselves throttling back to allow the bustle of the day to leave them far behind and ensconced in the gossamer threads.
