The second volume of the compendium of 6 artists connected through their dark sounds called “Atlas of Penance”, is coming out in Vinyl 12″ & Digital formats on April 17, 2023 via Porto, Portugal/Osaka, Japan‘s label FLAGELANTE.
“Atlas of Penance II” EP‘s main objective is to showcase the different explorations of occult aesthetics from around the world.
The EP opens the A side with a gloomy, feet-dragging, Post-punk track by Hanging Freud, goes to a dream-like Techno-EBM rave with Kenny Campbell, and finishes this side with an Industrial-infused half Techno/half Electro track of Syndikat Kommando 98, a project by Viktor Lenis (Cute Heels, Modernista).
The B side is no less strong, starting with a straight-up Techno banger by the prolific producer Drvg Cvltvre, moving on to a genre-defying track filled with Experimental elements fuelled with modular synthesis and harsh kicks by Black Potion, and ending the EP with an anxiety-inducing dark ambient track by Dim Garden.
WL//WH is pleased to Premiere “It’s Time” by Hanging Freud, a Dark Wave/Post Punk/Experimental duo based in Glasgow, Scotland, made up of Paula Borges and Jonathan Skinner.
Dramatic crepuscular visions merge heavy dull melodies and immersive cinematic flairs into a stark and barren isolation under a beautifully traumatized and fragile vocal stoicism whilst minimal hypnotic piano pulses and warm droning seas mesmerize with evocative, poignant resonance to capture the dire disenchanted broods of hopeless romantic devastation.
