Originally from Dunedin, NZ, the solo cold synth-pop project from Amber Skye of Strange Harvest, Embedded Figures, conjure up dance driven future pop that perhaps belongs in a Berlin nightclub circa 2040, after paving a venomous, dark disco path in the New Zealand electronic underground the unit relocated to Melbourne in 2017.
The Embedded Figures contribution to Detonic Recordings‘ Minimum Viable Product Single Series is the disorientating “St. Kilda” dedicated to the equally bi-polar Melbourne sea-side suburb. The song drifts away and back again on a mesmerising trajectory, seemingly only hanging together only by virtue of the searing vocals that threaten to switch from torch singer to blow torched at any moment.
B-side is the inevitable 4am banger “Inferno” and videos for both songs have been created by Auckland–Ally DucklingMonster providing a montage of disjointed, retro-future, day-glo imagery that matches the music perfectly.
The Single will be available digitally on Tuesday 23rd October from Spotify, Deezer, iTunes etc and for free download from the Detonic Bandcamp. The songs were recorded at Phaedra Studios by Evelyn Ida (“Pikelet”) Morris, mastered by Bevan Smith and the Cover image is by Radinka Maru.
“A” sides are exclusive and/or specially commissioned tracks for the project and in December the complete compilation (Vinyl and CD) will be released featuring the lead tracks from each contributor.
