Spotlight: Vierance – Semblance

0002654094_10

My new favorite album. Vierance from Toronto have created a sublime piece of new-wave oriented synth-pop, together with the dark overtones of electro, unhinged with a techno counterpart. Their latest album “Semblance” came out just two weeks ago on DETH Records – the newly birthed label courtesy of the bass-player in (SINS) ϟ†Nϟ. In comparison to the earlier release by them, the “Vierance EP“, they’ve polished their sound a lot more. There are resemblances with their earlier release, but they’re less heavy on their atmosphere in contrast to their melodies. A vibrant motion, a slick but raw sound is captured with the later tracks on the release, with a rather frightening but erratic sound-scape is unearthed. Ringing in my ears is the harmonious vocals, especially within my favorite track “Mosaic” – heading in the completely right direction with the stalemate of sound, in a forlorn sonic landscape – of mythical proportions. Accordingly, the music always keep you on the edge, it brings you to life. Using their palette to color the world beautiful, with their soft-spoken melodies, yet at the same time – harshly lambasting your eardrums. I just wish that I could’ve found out about their doings earlier, since they seem to have been around for a while by now. If anything, Vierance was in need of getting inspected thoroughly, meaning that I have played this release on and off for the last few days when I came to stumble upon them by accident. Life is weird, but they carry a unique sound paired with a monolithic atmosphere. Stream their whole new release down below and make sure to check out DETH Records, as there will be a whole lot of future releases being put out by them, in the nearest future. Wondrous is a word coming in good company. Purchase the limited edition cassette, limited to 90 copies, from DETH Records.
