There’s a dark heart in every city, in every society. In Clear Colors native city, this heart is darker than most when the lights dim and the night life comes out to play! While many electronic acts are more inclined to use the glitz and glamour of the city for inspiration, Clear Colors have found their sound in the unseen, often making their music both an affirming and at turns, a harrowing and uncomfortable listen. The band explains this, “The music we create reflects where we’re from, and where we’re from is not nice!” Clear Colors self-titled debut album definitely isn’t all dark, there are moments of pure melody, even euphoria with tracks like Euphrates and the hauntingly beautiful Nightwing. These balance the aggressively visceral tracks like Trans-Lucifer and Headf**k. Critics have already started trying to coin a name, a genre, to describe the band,something they are quick to dismiss, “You make any music and people will put a tag on it. No one cares any more about scenes or movements, life is to disparate and so is music”
All Stations Inbetween
Continues Antosh’s explorations of low event horizon music. Reminiscent of Eno’s collaborations with Cluster from the late 70’s, it’s a record that with the help of simple piano melodies at the forefront and soothing yet haunting synth work that gently hums in the background clothing the space, creates beautifully uplifting and inspiring soundscapes that wouldn’t feel out-of-place in a gorgeous desolate scene of a movie, a classical minimalist album, or a Sigúr Rós record.
Flux Clinic 1
Is an imaginary soundtrack record recalling both the synth heavy sounds that made John Carpenters films so memorable whilst dabbling in similar electronic elements as Clint Mansell’s highly praised soundtrack for Requiem For A Dream. With touch stones such as Goblin’s Argento soundtracks, Kraftwerk, funk and avant garde minimalism, post-rock, electronic and dance elements, it fizzes with ideas and intelligence. With tinges of the fantastic 65daysofstatic and also at times, Does It Offend You Yeah? Flux Clinic 1 is a record both fascinating and revealing.
