Who: Darkwave tandem
from Los Angeles
Debut album: ADMIRE
Out: 22 April 2022.
The LP was written and recorded in California and was mixed by
long-time collaborator and UK producer James Aparicio (Nick Cave,
Depeche Mode, Spiritualized, Liars).
‘Marry the Night’ is a love song for nights after hours spent walking through empty streets.
The track opens with a lulling atmospheric loop that gradually opens into heavier spaces, with Shelley X’s signature delayed vocals echoing against drop-tuned guitars. Throughout, a drum machine pulses, like beats echoing from outside a Brooklyn warehouse. It’s gloomy listening, but the gloom is somehow warm and inviting.
Turn Up The Volume: This new dark piece resonates like a nightmare in slow motion
by A Place To Bury Strangers. You know, when you try to run, but some unknown power holds you back. Scary, right? But here, city lights guide you safely to the place you wanna go to.
Duskiness in the sunny City of Angels. Not really the way
Los Angeles is pictured in my head, but fascinating it is.
Walk along here…
