Obelisk: Color War
Brooklyn duo Color War have an intriguingly dark sound, as represented on this thumping, gorgeous goth-torch song from their forthcoming debut LP, It Could Only Be This Way. The menacingly glimmering synth work that lies below Lindsay Mound’s cresting vocals is reminiscent of Zola Jesus at her epic best. This is a very good thing.
Check out the appropriately eerie video below:
It Could Only Be This Way should be coming out this autumn via Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
(hat tip to the always-on-point Lauren Laverne and the best radio station in the world – except when the painfully unfunny duo of Radcliffe and Maconie are on – BBC 6music)
