Such a stunning voice. Like Dusty Springfield singing with Zomby Simon Raymonde Cocteau Twins/Bella Union/Amazing Radio

fire_sign release Sweet Oblivion EP

Sweet Oblivion is the first single from London based ‘doomtronica’ duo fire_sign.

Bleak warehouse-techno beats and synthetic pads slowly build under vulnerable vocals and soft cello in a track that “brings to mind the vocal intensity of ‘Dusty in Memphis’ era Dusty Springfield backed by a form of electronic soul that’s warm and dark.”- Electronic North.

“There’s a broad number of sounds and ideas at work on this tune, that should be pulling in very different directions. Instead, the result is a wonderful set of ingredients offering up a lush, engaging soundscape that suggests everything from electronica through to techno.

“At its heart, ‘Sweet Oblivion’ is a wonderfully layered composition weaving in strings and electronics. Glayzer’s vocals, meanwhile, lend a gossamer sheen to proceedings.” – The Electricity Club
