Your Gay Thoughts - To Disappear
You had me at the band name.
A discordant opening, To Disappear floats near the ether, just out of reach. Highlighted thoughout is a desperate flickering negative space—it finds lines and rhythms and seems to draw a path, but just as you think you’ve got it figured out, it slides away again. There’s a stunning array of sounds on offer, tied together by a compelling vocal melody.
Well worth a listen, and a watch (the video, from Japanese animator densuke28, follows a time-travelling future ape that I’ve nicknamed Gary), if not just because it has one of my favourite band names of the year thus far.
