MOOD are excited to present a truly unique release from brand new act: Bleak House.
Identity unknown - little is known about them besides this intriguing two-line bioâ€¦
"Bleak house is systematic rebellion, spirit of revenge, will to power, cathartic frustration, beauty of the horrid, melancholy, opacity, insomnia.
Bleak House makes expansive yet claustrophobic, narrow, constricting, dry, cavernous, wide, reverberant, percussive, danceable sounds."
The sounds match those sentences: A piano poignancy lulls amid the trembling textures of 'Ghost Walk', a track that lives up to both title and bio and leaves you under no uncertain terms to what Bleak House is all about: timeless, evocative technoir.
'Steel & Iron' follows with a pulsating bass that throbs from left to right and rising rhythmic shots tessellate in momentum. Settling into a warm, dubby, rolling groove it's heads-down harmony for everyone in earshot. Understated.
This stirring first impression session concludes with 'Telescopic Philanthropy'. Not just a perennially on-point Dickens reference but classically trained tech with a precision balance of trancey uplift with its pensive arpeggio.
First impressions last and it's safe to say these will last a long time. Bleak House have done themselves proudâ€¦ Whoever they are.
