Artist: Steve Nolan & Grey Frequency
Label: Spun Out Of Control
“This is a soundtrack for the age of mass information, isolation and corrupted communication… experimenting with lo-fi found sound, dissonant noise, faulty tape loops and digital manipulation…”
The crackle of ghostly radio signals and sonorous drones blends with pitch-black electronica on ‘Intercept’, an album heavy on glitch-y atmospherics from industrial rock musician turned composer Steve Nolan and shadowy electronic artist Grey Frequency, aka Gavin Morrow.
Released digitally and as a run of strictly limited cassettes on Spun Out Of Control (catalogue number SOS 037), this is very much a late night headphone listen, transporting the listener to otherworldly realms hidden in plain sight.
The disquieting air and score-like delivery devised by the inspired pairing holds obvious appeal for fans of Sunn O)))’s output, as well as Jóhann Jóhannsson’s Mandy soundtrack and, more recently, Ben Salisbury, Geoff Barrow & The Insects' work on DEVS.
“The lines of communication are now open…”
So make sure you're tuned in.
