‘A Great Design’ is the first and currently exclusive cut from the forthcoming second LP of fine Brooklyn post-punk band BlackMarble, entitled A Different Arrangement and due September 9th on Hardly Art.
Playing their cards so close to their chest as to only release three tracks on their bandcamp to sample, secretive and elusive undertones also seep into the music; the analogue stylings of the cover don’t reveal much, neither do the angular electronic motifs to which we are abruptly introduced at the song’s opening.
The outset is a little eerie and subdued, but the slow rhythmic thud of a sonically low-end synthesizer and the onset of a cloud of cold-wave signature opiate fuzz is above all else, heart-warming. I have nothing but anticipation for the LP to arrive.
