Am I Really Here: Instinctive Isle of Man gloom-pop duo Raine wonder if this is all really real with the moody classic ‘Roam’

Floating furiously through the creepy chimneys and into our suddenly alert mindsets via their debut album named ‘Most Nights Lately‘, Raine have our anxious hearts beating even faster with the dark cloudy skies new single about feeling so lost in these familiar but eerie streets with ‘Roam‘.

Isle of Man electronic/ gloom-pop group Raine, are a dynamically charged outfit full of creative interweaving skills which has your mind swerving around frantically to find out more. They have such a uniquely attractive sound that is such a pleasure to hear, as they take us on a wild trip through the doom and gloom of the current world.

Raine’s sound is uniquely positioned to their environment. Living on an island, the isolation and vast landscapes detail their experiences to deliver a haunting broadcast to a wider world.” ~ Raine

Raine have us looking around so apprehensively – as we scan our left and right – to work out if the devil is indeed beside us or if we are safe – from this feeling of mass paranoia, which has shaken our once-strong confidence to its fragile core. They have a innate ability to capture your vivid thoughts that has your pulse racing at a spectacular Lewis Hamilton rate, all through this movie-like soundtrack.

Roam‘ from the exciting Isle of Man electronic/gloom-pop duo act Raine, is such a moody track which has you thinking rather deeply about your current state of mind. This is the story about feeling so lost and not knowing what to do, as you truly feel like an odd stranger in your own town, which suddenly feels dangerously dark and horribly sinister. The weather seems to be turning even more ominous as this track develops even further into the shadows, as you wonder if you are even alive anymore.

‘Provoke’ is a dark and pain-filled classic from Raine

Provoke‘ is the fantastic new single from Dream Pop act Raine and it’s a terrific listen.

Raine is an electronic band from the Isle of Man that includes Suzy Manton and Martyn Cain. This meeting of creative minds has a big history in the local Folk and Post-Rock scenes respectively. It is the cross-over in genres that has created this dark Dream Pop project that is music to listen on loud. The sounds go through the walls and you feel in a different world.

This is about meshing our hands together to fully feel the love again after traumatic times. Walking again and getting through the pain inside. Breathing and letting go of what is burning you like a raging fire inside. This is a haunting broadcast throughout the world and the vocals give me chills in my spine.

With their debut release ‘Provoke‘, Raine capture a contemporary cinematic ballad of self destruction and loss, framed in the production setting of a Netflix Thriller. I certainly agree that this would make a fantastic intro to a show or during a deep moment. Raine impress highly and look set for greater things, their music is arched back and really to fly all over the world.

Baad Acid send through psychedelic drone pop waves to inspire with ”Monolith”

Their music is out of a UK music. Perhaps Snatch or Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. It’s very dark and moody with some spooky sounds that keep you on the edge of your chair. The song builds and build, keeping us all captivated.

A monolith is a geological feature consisting of a single massive stone or rock, such as some mountains, or a single large piece of rock placed as, or within, a monument or building. I feel like Baad Acid are busy jamming right now on a massive rock, with their sound effortless and professional. They have a sound that must sound even better live.

Monolith” is a grand song from the Douglas, Isle Of Man band. They are on another level with this and an entertaining song with lots of twists and turns. They have an earthy sound sound tight together. An act to watch out for in 2020 and for festivals in 2021 no doubt.

Check out their link on Facebook now for more.

To hear this song on Spotify be sure to head through there and tune into the waves.
