The thing I’ve found most amazing about Submerse’s music this week is that he manages to make his percussion sound cluttered even though there’s absolutely nothing to it. His new EP is remarkably lush, still emotionally fragile and very carefully programmed.
Definitely taking a leaf out of the Cinematics' book, this is a slice of well-appointed downbeat, with beautiful strings and a David Lynch-inspired video to match. Tight.
Is there any musical genre that Will Holland touches that doesn’t turn to gold? Judging by this latest collab with the legendary Shinehead of ‘Jamaican In New York’ fame, it would seem not. Just the right application of vocal, bassline, reverb and echo make this a bona fide release that would have found favour on any Fashion, Pama or Greensleeves label release schedule back in the day.
Murky meanderings from Vuurwerk, who combine Sylvie Kreusch’s delicate vocals over dark synths and delicate drum programming. For fans of Walls and general shoegazing.
