The experimental art-rock duo THE CHRONICLES OF MANIMAL AND SAMARA
switch their sonic and subject-matter approach so inventively and arrestingly that
you’re looking forward to what is coming next after every release. And yes, they
surprise once again with a stupendous fresh piece titled THE DESCENT .
A twofold composition that becomes one picture,
one whole after a couple of spins.
It starts with Daphne Ang telling – literally – what the song is all about. This time
her spoken-word essay takes us to the spooky reality of the fact that Doomsday is
coming closer and closer. We desperately need a tabula rasa in order to design a restart,
a new beginning to stop the current chaos, growing at an ominous speed, organised by evil forces that destroy our climate, our human spirit, and our very life. As she progresses the background soundscape swells until a metallic eruption, simulating the downfall of humankind, bursts out of your speakers. Be ready for a shattering, infernal finale.
This is 2020…
