Poetry and Electronic Post-Punk Collide in The Ninth Configuration’s Latest Single, Love is a Want of Reason

If artists climbed the charts on the poetic intrigue of their track titles alone, the UK-based outfit, The Ninth Configuration, would never leave the top of the billboard charts with their latest single, Love is a Want of Reason.

Even before you hit play on the track, you’re desperate to hear what introspective gold is nestled inside. Hint, you definitely won’t be disappointed. The dark electronic post-punk single has exactly what it takes to win over Alex Cameron and Jack Ladder fans with the crooned indie post-punk vocals that effortlessly fall into the synthesised pool of relatable melancholia.

The official music video for Love is a Want of Reason is now available to stream on YouTube.

Sentry takes us to Yesteryear with his latest future bass production.

If any up and coming electronica artist has what it takes to create a new trajectory in the evolution of future bass, it is the 21-year-old UK pioneer, Sentry.

By using natural elements in his ambient work that cuts with an atmospheric chill, despite the warm organic textures weaved into the production, you can’t help but be arrested by the cinematic flair exhibited in Yesteryear.

The first drop is a harsh and scuzzy descent into discord; from there on out, the basslines tear away at any ambience the prelude offered and leaves you galvanised by the alchemic synthesised momentum.

Yesteryear is now available to stream on Spotify.

WHITING proves that optimism and euphoria are still in trend with their progressive DnB mix ‘Cyan Nights’

To tease their forthcoming EP, Bristol-based alchemist of electronically-crafted euphoria, WHITING, has released their progressive drum n bass record, ‘Cyan Nights’.

After a moody ambient prelude, Cyan Nights transitions from artfully intricate to a bass-drenched danceable feat of future-pop with a few alt-rock inclinations thrown in for good measure.

‘High vibe’ music may not be in short supply in 2021, but WHITING has a unique way of conjuring organically optimistic imagery and energy within their sound. You can’t help but fall into the infectious grooves, especially when the soaring 80s-style guitar hooks sink their teeth in.

Cyan Nights is now available to stream on SoundCloud.
