Scan the horizon
Guided by plasma
Angel or sorceress
Wrapped in a white dress
Beware St Elmo and what lurks below
But I, I got caught in your gravity
With a chemical urgency
For that moment all shallow was deep
St.Elmo by Voltage Black is the newest experimental release that deserves a spotlight. It mixes electronic music with rock, such as post-rock with an industrial mood. The track is part of the debut album of Voltage Black released this 21st of September The Curve of the Earth is With You. The opening party for the album will take place at New River Studios, this Thursday 27th September in London. Voltage Black, is a genre-defying vocal project of multi-alias artist, Ewan Fisher. According to its press release, the album has several different influences as much as feelings that served as inspiration for the creation of each track:
The album is about a long and deeply intimate relationship in the artist’s life that recently ended, and the individual songs explore themes such as obsession, optimism, chaos, and the slow, unending road to self-understanding. It uses melodic and textural maximalism to impart a sense of emotional and cerebral overwhelm on the listener, whilst the sonic detail and unconventional structures represent the depths we can go to in attempting to understand our lives and their ever changing, unpredictable natures.
These seven psychedelic and crystalline compositions draw together elements of alternative pop, post-rock, synth-wave, techno and cinematic ambience, to make a new sound all of its own. The sonic and emotional result is cohesive, and Fisher’s understanding of structure and melody makes the songs accessible and universally resonant.
