If you’re looking for aural escapism, Mercury Teardrop’s mesmerising 2020 album ‘Blinded by a Dark Star’ serves as the perfect divergence from reality.
‘Noise in a Vacuum’ efficaciously sets the cold tone for the second album released by the Vancouver-based Experimental Post Rock artist. If Bauhaus gives you chills, prepare for your skin to prickle under the command of sonically dystopic tones.
The soothing instrumental melodies bring the comfort while the entrancing reverb-laden effects paired with Rosalie Sonsalla’s vocals bring an atmospheric intensity to the soundscape which borders on Avant-Garde, but there’s plenty of accessible grounded realism to ensure that the evocative message behind the single still resonates.
