Solemn Eye debuts his first Steyoyoke EP ‘Melodrama‘, a tantalizing tribute to techno. The melodramatic tones and spirit transport you into a cosmos lit bright by hallucinatory sounds, kicks, and impossibly intricate bass lines. The EP includes three original productions, ‘Kenopsia‘, ‘Dusky Cloud‘, and ‘Vellichor‘.
‘Kenopsia’: a place that used to be bustling with people that has become eerie, abandoned and lonely. The climatic track takes you through a range of emotions, from emptiness and uncertainty to delusional joy. The solemn vocals radiating subtly, accompanied by the sharp piercing synths give this tracks a necessary duality.
‘Dusky Cloud’, a calm before the storm. The sweet, innocent, seemingly analog sounds accompanied by a compelling ascension of emotion and intensity lead to a dreamy trance.
‘Vellichor’ is a tribute to used bookstores that are deeply rooted in the passage of time. A dedication to lost knowledge and loves, ‘Vellichor’ hits hard with eerie, nostalgic noise that fills the soul with the joy of a lost greatness.
A melodramatic EP, ‘Melodrama’ is a powerful first step from new comer Solemn Eye, sliding in perfectly into the Steyoyoke family.
