I don’t mean to alarm you, but I found an Industrial artist whose vocals are as ethereally astounding as his beats. Nobody was just one of the pensively ambient Electronica tracks from Empty Flies 2018 album SHADOWS that left me hypnotised.
As I immersed myself into Dark Wave tsunami of sound that the Empty Flies deftly composed with their synthesised instrumentals I let the oceanic waves wash over me until the Trap beat picked up momentum and went in an unpredictable direction. The band mixed Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails) style vocals, with a beat that almost translated as tribal, which detracted away from he atypical harshness that you’d expect in the Industrial genre. I’ve spent enough time listening to Industrial music to know that beats like this aren’t created every day, and with a style as unfathomably slick as the Empty Flies I have no doubt that they’ll see the same success as their influences which include Massive Attack, Queens of the Stone Age and Depeche Mode.
