Dorvin Borman – ‘Wrath’ [Premiere]

Introducing Dorvin Borman‘s debut single ‘Wrath’, it’s an impressive tune that’s part dream pop, part jangle pop. It’s the work of Los Angeles-based solo artist Devin Bierman who wrote, recorded and produced it DIY. It’s a song about attempting to overcome homebody anxiety in the hope of promoting progress through introspection. In his words, “a meditation on overcoming anxiety in the gut of a city that doesn’t need you to think for it”. Borman sings, “lying down in the city speaker, feeling the wrath of it all… Can I follow you and do what you do in your reverie…”

‘Wrath’ delivers delicate vocal harmonies with lo-fi charm over a wonky drum machine. The latter half of the song opens up into a chilled instrumental break, a nice contrast. The song is heavily inspired by Brutalist architecture and Jean-Luc Godard films, as well as artists and bands such as the Radio Dept., Melody’s Echo Chamber, and Cocteau Twins. A debut EP release is in the works (release date TBC) with more songs on the way in the coming months.

Dead Gaze – ‘Wait For Nothing’

Dead Gaze has returned! The acid-drenched creations of Mississippi’s R. Cole Furlow are sounding as warped as ever. ‘Wait For Nothing’ is a ripping cut from his latest full length ‘Easy Travels’ (out this week through Ernest Jenning Record Co). It follows the psych leaning lead single ‘Constantly Happy’, and heads an album of eclectic gems. Dead Gaze as always, doesn’t disappoint.
