Puce Mary – “Spiral, The” – [Posh Isolation]
Cold, industrial, haunting noise from Danish artist Frederikke Hoffmeier, aka Puce Mary. A slow, throbbing baseline permeates each track, while heavy machinery crashes and thuds around you. Synths shriek and drone, and alarm bells ring.
Listening to this album feels like being trapped in a sinking submarine, bumping and scraping past rocks. Waves of claustrophobia, panic, and hopelessness.
Four of the eight songs have lyrics, sometimes screamed and processed beyond recognition, other times spoken with a crisp chilling monotony.
