Amiture, the genre-bending music project of Brooklyn, New York-based sound and visual artists Jack Whitescarver and Coco Goupil, incorporates elements as varied as Electronic, Trip-Hop, Dark Wave, Goth-Pop, Post-punk, and Outlaw Blues with a unique flair, to unveil the lead single and video for “Billy’s Dream“, taken from the anticipated debut full-length LP, “Mother Engine”, scheduled for release on February 9, 2024, via fellow NY record label Dots Per Inch Music.
The dark groovy churn of twisted bluesy vibes set the heady backdrop for Whitescarver’s classically trained voice and Goupil’s gritty, tripped-out-guitar sound where, in “Billy’s Dream”, a blurry layer of claustrophobic distortion glazes over heavily thumping, prowling drum loops, drilling bass vibrations, dim screeching frequencies, and hissing high hats amid layers of inaudible conversation noise, surrounding provocative vocals, alternating soft swaggering urgency and angsty shivering aches, with surreal dissociation.
Cinematic visuals directed by Cyrus Duff build a visual world for Amiture’s uncanny surrealism and gloomy art-house doom by syncing an edgy and talented crew of actors, who all represent the mysterious, tortured, and alienated Billy Lamb character, with the unique effects and flow of the soundtrack.
