Ectoplasm GirlsNew Feeling Come
Five years have elapsed since their surreally compelling TxN LP for iDEAL, in which time they’ve not so much as refined, but followed the same, winding paths to equally murky conclusions in New Feeling Come.
The Stockholm-based duo of Tanya and Nadine Byrne, a.k.a. Ectoplasm Girls, sound like the progeny of some ancient, mythological creature as opposed to anything of this earthly realm. Their music distills traces of post-techno, doom metal and esoteric electronic pop into a skin-crawling residue that strongly resonates with their name.
As with the aforementioned TxN - a unique highlight of the 2011 schedule - their follow-up spells out a mostly wordless grimoir of slow, writhing rhythms, bittersweet tones and phosphorescent texture incomparable with almost anyone else we can recall, bar maybe Coil or the that ghost band who soundtracked your dreams last night.
Perhaps more so than on TxN, in this instance they feel more faded, detached from the listener, drifting thru 15 stages of séance-like ambience with an incorporeal presence belied only by their clammy sleight of hand and vaporous traces of breathing.
It’s all dark as you like, but crucially with a sense of ambiguity that allows for interpretation depending your mood and ability to discern between poltergeist like trembles and the spirits of two possessed, possibly playful, Swedish girls. Either way it’s wicked and well worth the wait.
