Sporeprint is an enigmatic solo project based out of Columbia, South Carolina which, over the weekend, dropped his debut self/titled EP.
Over four songs the artist weaves an alluringly lo-fi and gloomily atmospheric blend of buzzing and slightly abrasive reverb-infused shoegaze haze, frozen and dismal coldwave pulsations and trancey electronic rhythms with an underlining fragile melodic sensibility and raw distressful intensity, equally poignant and unnerving.
“Tapestry” unveils lyric-wise darkly esoteric observations exposing serious flaws, misperceptions, and an overall ridiculousness of human behavior.
Slowly unfolding searing oscillations of harrowing and restrained guitar feedback blur and drift through piercing layers of distortion enlivened by grieving bass throbs rhythmically vibrating throughout as submerged, abrasively pained vocal cries of fear, disgust, and shame in sheer nihilistic terror. The sonic flow fades, just the simmering bass pulses achingly charged by hypnotic droning crackles and faint beats before resuming, together with subdued, harrowing guitar turbulence, the merciless agonizing pace to obscurity.
