FrozenInMonochrome: Sunset


So, it is finally spring in 2018 and we are back with the groovy track ‘Sunset’ from FrozenInMonochrome’s upcoming Colors EP. It has a poppish rhythm but grungy vocals and a wavy loopy bass line which work very well together. Dark with cheerful undertones.. Like a sunset :).

A bit of info about the band:
Formed in July of 2014 in Dallas, FrozenInMonochrome is a one-man coldwave project formed by Steven Grant (as FroznMonokrome), also involved with the experimental dreampop and goth-infused Sialuk project alongside Basavriuk (of Dead Souls and Lake Milk), an experimental project with Kelly Sinclair, an occasional song with Les Modules Etranges, Osiris Module, Thalie Nemesis, etc., and the odd remix here and there.

If you are interested in keeping up with them, you can follow them on your choice of social poison at:

PLGRMS: Pieces


DSC_0359-1-2

Every once in a while there comes a song that reminds me of that wonderful quote from ‘A Clockwork Orange’ while the protagonist listened to Beethoven’s Ninth: ‘Oh bliss! Bliss and heaven! Oh, it was gorgeousness and gorgeousity made flesh. It was like a bird of rarest-spun heaven metal or like silvery wine flowing in a spaceship, gravity all nonsense now‘. I can’t phrase my praise for this layered beauty of a track from PLGRMS any better, so just listen to it and then listen to it again and again and again:

There is also a video for this track, which I unfortunately can’t access from Germany due to it being blocked by one of the most controversial authorities here ‘GEMA’. A link to the track, should you be located anywhere other than the fatherland:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zbTHbErVWV4

A bit of info about the band: PLGRMS is a duo comprised of the talented Australian born, London-based singer-songwriter Toma Banjanin and accomplished Sydney songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Bowden.The track (shared above) is co-written and produced by Jimmy Lyell – one half of internationally-renowned electronic duo Flight Facilities – and also features The Preatures’ Luke Davison on drums.
