RIYL: Burial


Greyscale makes me think of Burial’s seminal Untrue and is one of many examples as to why you shouldn’t make your end of the year list before the end of year. Greyscale is monochromatic in its sound, and just conveys greyness quite well. The bass, drum machines and synth notes are submerged in this thick smoke that will black out the sun and take you to the night in an instant. From the gun cocks to the disembodied chopped up voices, this just feels like a wonderful grimier spiritual successor to Burial – no offense meant. Greyscale evokes a contemplative mood, even fit for a dance floor depending on the crowd, and as far as music I’ve heard this year this sounds nothing like anything I’ve come across. I think I’ve found a diamond this late in the year, and is a reminder as to why I keep my eyes peeled until December 31st passes. Listen to the Bandcamp stream of Greyscale below and see what you think of it. Cheers!
