Werewolves, Beware! – I want your Life

Darkwave outfit WEREWOLVES, BEWARE! take a dive down the rabbit hole of social media-spawned envy on “I Want Your Life,” the second track off of their new EP, Rey Drecker. Swarms of synths swell and surge through the opening silence, inundating the track with an electrifying energy. Haunting vocals, mainly comprised of frenzied shouts, intertwine with the track’s cosmic instrumental to form a menacing yet irresistible strain of dance-inducing electronica. Ultimately, with their eccentric disco-meets-grunge concoction, this Toronto/Calgary duo create a fiery track that captivates us with every listen.

“I Want Your Life” is now available along with the rest of Rey Drecker via Bandcamp.

Holy Data – Ether

Montreal’s Holy Data continue their synth-pop fuelled journey through the depths of present-day dysphoria with “Ether,” the sixth track off of their self-titled LP. At first, “Ether” consumes us with the subtlety and softness of a hazy daydream. Moments before the trance-like intro can take full effect, synths burgeon and burst through the gentle soundscape, ushering in a reinvigorated melody. Vivid psych-pop warps the track until it culminates in a kaleidoscopic cluster of synths, guitar, and a contagious chorus. As a result, the blissful frenzy at the crux of “Ether’s” charm is unleashed.

“Ether” is available now along with the rest of Holy Data’s self-titled LP via Bandcamp.
