Caskets is the second single from the upcoming 'Somewhere In Between EP' from Cymatica. Out early 2021.
Another masterful piece of songwriting and understated production. The incessant arpeggiated bass and muted drums supports Terena's delicate vocals like a casket that works as a recipient, but also as a restraining mechanism.
'Caskets' possesses light and dark elements to it. The esoteric lyrics are a reflection on life and loss that can be dark and abysmal and at the same time a call to add 'colour' or 'lightness' to the inevitable.
Cymatica's unique brand of nostalgia and their existentialist look on life are perfectly showcased in Caskets.
As we say goodbye to 2020, and welcome 2021 with open arms, Parralox rounds off the year with a new album - Holiday '20! This installment includes some classic chestnuts from our fave synth heroes: Scorpions, Erasure, A Flock of Seagulls, Alan Parsons Project, Doves, Marc Almond and Sparks.
The fourth and final mini-EP leading up to the DARK AGE DAY DREAM full length.
Down By Law, the lead single from DREAM (the 4th mini-EP) from avant-pop auteurs Eutropic, is a glimpse into the unfolding dystopia of our modern day society. It's a challenging, open-ended meditation on the concept of free will.
Starry Sky is a song that speaks on our innate need to ponder the primal mystery. We ask questions that have no answers, it's in our nature to do so. The song starts off tightly coiled, full of mounting tensions and an almost foreboding bite. It eventually erupts into a detailed, almost blinding sonic painting of infinite pulsating astral bodies above, the world aflame. Wonder ensues. The realisation of our relative irrelevance in regards to the vastness of the space surrounding us eventually leads to a rapturous humility. The moment when you realise that you are a part of the infinite creation, ecstasy kicks in.
"No Fear' is the 10th commercial maxi single from Fused, and is a driven, modern electronic pop powerhouse influenced from the classic electropop and industrial music of the 1980s. Released as a four track single “No Fear” features the main single mix, an “Extended Version”, a more industrial flavoured “Control Mix” and bonus track called “Midnight Drive” inspired by mid 80s and modern Synthwave.
It's time again for another Jigsaw Sequence release. This time it is Lost and Found, another 80's inspired New Wave/New Romantic type ditty, hopefully tugging on the coat strings of all those fantastic 80's artists that came before us. There is an extended mix on this release, along with a new instrumental - Laughter and Tears.
