Last month,CLRVYNTpremiered "Black Waves" from Remnant. CLRVYNT says, "The song is augmented with deep percussion, rolling drum hits going off repeatedly under the weight of an airy synth. Vocals are a drifting presence throughout, quick to leave almost as soon as they show up on the scene, while the bassline gives the song a sinister edge. Ultimately, this is a well-oiled machine of dark cool." "Black Waves" is also available to post and share via Soundcloud.
Remnant is a bleak, dub-influenced production, mixing elements of electronic music, Krautrock, and psychedelia, with nods to the the extreme sonic treatments of Adrian Sherwood. Produced by Monte Vallier (Wax Idols, Soft Moon, Weekend), Remnant blends shifting textures of drum machines, live percussion, ambient guitar, vintage delays and custom engineered effects.
“Black Waves’” opens with hypnotic percussion, Beck's abstract rhythm guitar, and stark, angular basslines from former Soft Moon bassist Justin Anastasi, who makes a guest appearance on the EP. “Almost Hidden” follows with an effected wash of guitar and pulsing electronic drums. “Remain” is a dense, reverb-laden drone of guitar and synth bass. The EP closes with “Subfloor”, featuring Ott’s heavy toms, Tecon's evocative reversed vocals, and Beck's seraphic guitar.
