Small Black

28 Oct

courtesy of myspaceNew Chain is the debut long-player from New York’s Small Black. Richly coloured and thickly layered, it is an absorbing, eclectic and obsessive body of work. The Brooklyn group have succeeded in melting together locked and popped drum-shudder, gauzy spirographic synths and subtly contagious, half-remembered melody into ebullient bursts of evocative, subliminal and thoroughly modern pop. The songs are equally informed by the rhythmic bounce and stylistic swagger of more left-leaning contemporary radio rap and R’n’B as it is the submerged kaleidoscopic swirl of the early 4AD dream factory.

Make sure to catch Small Black at the Trunkspace on 11/2
