Referencing the concept of wild hybridisation and crossbreeding, 'Wreck The Bloodline' is the debut album of Yannick Franck’s solo project RAUM (one half of Orphan Swords), and will be released on Brvtalist favorite, Glasgow-based Clan Destine Records.
The allusion to the realm of biology not only echoes a certain sonic dissociation that permeates the different layers of the record, which comes together as an exploratory journey inspired by Yannick’s eclectic influences, but also points out to a slight feral undertone that surfaces unexpectedly. All 6 tracks are pieces of a bigger ontological puzzle that will make sense the more you listen to it and delve into its intricacies.
We’re proud to premiere today ‘Śiv’, a hypnotizing track on which we can hear samples from an old documentary about Hinduism, captivating the listener through the subtle contrast between a soft yet composed voice and the rough corrosive industrial rhythms. Reminding me at times of Cosey Fanni Tutti’s Time To Tell, ‘Śiv’ perfectly encapsulates one of Yannick’s many creative identities.
Wreck The Bloodline is out on Clan Destine Records on September 14th and can be pre-ordered over here.
