Dying Of Jealousy
Out 21st November
Nigel Yang and Jonnine Standish return to the mixing desk after a heavy reception for the recent single Drama. This time, a double layering of songs mark this point in their career. Dying Of Jealousy works on the hook and the catchy quality which has by now begun to shine through their electronic expressions. Relaxed yet with a spirit of the dance, this club-land duo brings intellectual beats and classically mastered sonics to us all with an attitude that doesn't fade. With Jonnine's voice, and the compositions laid down by Nigel, HTRK bring this record to the surface with heart, soul, and will.
Reverb and warm distortion give a wet feeling to the crackle of rhythm which opens the first number. Title track Dying of Jealousy begins with a steady pace with sonic stretches from left to right. Echoes build in the drum work to give a soft bed for Jonnine Standish to begin her lines. A sense of the gothic seeps through, black lace, pale skin, red lips, and melancholy eyes all spring to mind as the melodious phrases drip from the speakers. Yearnful remarks with felt passion sleekly dress the humble yet remarkably mixed drum and guitar undercarriage. I'm reminded of Black Tape For A Blue Girl, and the heavenly sadness which blankets the headspace with this music.
As the second track opens, a slower and spacious rhythm rolls out the room like a rolling pin. Thudding bass and drum resolve to bring out a shiny and spongy current of sound which once more is joined by the delicious musings of Jonnine. Moving slowly through crowds of people in a darkly lit room while looking for that smiling face we couldn't help notice, the sea of people diffuse into one another and we gracefully progress towards the end of the evening. Summer Rain brings home a sense of the humid and warm nights in which the labyrinth of intentions and desires keep us occupied.
