We posted about Nicolas Nadeau’s other project (with Xander Harris), Slow Pulse, in May lastÂ year. Â This year we’ve got Nadeau’s Single Lash — his voice still seeped in all the pained fragile beauty of Goth, but relocated from the city to the fields, where guitars endlessly drenchÂ the landscape.
Drown is just such a slice of wilderness. Â The guitars roam all around, like restless waveforms tracing theÂ contours of the land. Â Vast slow riffs that speak of cyclopean structures rising out of the grassÂ flecked hills.
In the midst of this, Nadeau appears like a sage whispering atop just such a pagan hilltop. Â His voice projected with supernatural powerÂ throughout the land. Â Deep and resonant with the force of something, if not occult, than primal. Â This is, after all, the method of Goth rather than the mere trappings.
This is taken from the self-titled album by Single Lash. Â You an pre-order it from Mirror Universe Tapes on…tape (and download), right here.
