Belgium has been a hotbed of electronic experimentation for decades now, with everyone from R&S Records to Soulwax emerging from the Lowland country. ORPHAN SWORDS are a product of Belgium's continually creative music scene, with the left field pairing managing to find new ways to tease out dance music's left field. Fusing techno with EBM, industrial with glitchy electronics, the pair's new EP 'License To Desire' is a fascinating listen.
One can imagine VEIL OF LIGHT's mysterious mastermind writing and recording these songs in solitude in a cold bunker on the outskirts of Zurich, Switzerland. Breath evaporating in the frosty air. Propulsive rhythms, reverb drenched guitars and moody vocals. Their debut 'Ξ' was released in November 2014, and is characterized as “ice cold gothgaze splendor”.
TRESPASSER’s sonic architecture, built upon heavy synth layers, arp drones and deranging oscillators, took shape melting down with a chronology of subversive, mind-altering sonorous incarnations and congregating into a daze of techno-ambient, post-punk and remote 8-bit glitched memories.
