Out: 31st July
The Angel Heart has many things on the horizon with a huge build-up over the summer. This single is proof that the musician's work is never done as yet more progress and dimension is added to the sounds. In a round-about-way, the B-side is the first number on offer, something I find curiously fun. Simple things eh?
So with Idiosynkrasia it begins. A thumping and steady electro bass drum resounds in a quick and grabby tempo. A staggered element releases a shimmering cymbal and possibly a snare as a waft of almost aromatic effect brings out yet more reverberating percussion. Splashes of chord ring through the bass in luminescent drifts before a twangy string and pipe sound starts a melodic chapter. Up and down dancing motifs bring out a fun and lively edge while interesting computer sounds chatter and churn along the line of the beat.
Next is Shine, This number takes the title of the single. Immediately obvious is the track waveform, it's almost identical to the previous number. Either a remix or a delicate restructuring along the same basic idea, this one enters at a different angle. The hedonistic elements tingle as shiny chords greet thumping dance beats along the fairy-lights and mahogany sidings that conjure in my mind. Great builds and ferocious consistency in the tempo give this a floor-filling feel that's irresistible.
Both of these great tracks are available now on Spotify
