Punishing, pushing, and prodding you to do something about it. MY DISCO knows the value of restraint when it's called for and the advantage of width and breadth when necessary.
Favorite track: 1991.
MY DISCO have always employed space as an instrument. Space between notes; space between instruments; even space between albums, as the Australian trio prepare to release Severe, their first full-length record in nearly five years.
More than just a title, Severe pushes MY DISCO’s subtle, intensely focused, minimalist sound to its most terrifying extreme. It is bleak, occasionally uncomfortable, and unpredictably profound.
Severe is an album of aggravated tonal darkness and long breaths of disturbing silence, punctuated by pounding stabs and heavy, hypnotic rhythms. It is a minimalist approach to maximum sound, and by far the band’s darkest, heaviest, and most consistent album of MY DISCO’s burgeoning career.
I've been listening to the album on spotify for some time and i decided to buy it here because i really want some version of this (since i can't buy it physically)
i still need to dive into the meaning of the songs but from a surface level understanding of the lyrics it grips me a lot. The instrumental need no comment, it's so fkn good.... dudabarbaridade
