Kattacomb ambiently explores loss in their downtempo single ‘Now You’re Away’

Maryland, US-residing artist and producer Kattacomb has released his ambient EP, Sleepless, capturing the delirium of those sleep-deprived hours that seem to stretch beyond time or reason.

Now You’re Away may not use narrative lyrics or even vocals that still bear any humanistic resemblance. But with those three words in the title paired with the bright melodies, you’re drawn into a soundtrack that compassionately connects with you through the relatability of  loneliness that creeps into bed beside you when your mind refuses to sleep before daylight.

The conceptual use of birdsong around the glitchy, trip-hop minimalist instrumentals was nothing short of ingenious. At the risk of sounding hyperbolic, Now You’re Away may just be the most stunning feat of electronica since Apoptygma Berzerk’s ‘Until the End of the World’.

Now You’re Away is now available to stream via Soundcloud.

Kattacomb Releases New Track “The Hive”

“The Hive” is an electronic dance track straight out of Kattacomb’s brand new album “10 Days On Titan” which has as a basis it’s very own fiction story providing context to the tracks. This track itself, heavily based on driving rhythms which emerge as sounds are juxtaposed in the building of a tight texture, is a lot more than one can expect from an electronic dance track. The sounds used are carefully chosen and interwoven in a crisp and intense combination which drives curiosity for what’s about to happen next, and in fact the music keeps evolving until the very end.

A few moments after the mid point of the song, Kattacomb carefully takes out all instrumentation and prepares us for the final development and climax. Apart from this instance the track is not short of builds and drops either, making for a well structured dance track that is sure to have everyone moving. As his music keeps climbing up the charts, this budding producer definitely surpasses expectations with his creative approach to electronic music production.
