Producing ambient electronica stripped-backed to its bones, Ryan Vail‘s ‘Fade’ is awash with carefully crafted analogue noise, while the accompanying visuals bring the dark subtext to life.
Glitching, manufactured rhythms, warm piano and a heart-beating kick-drum play out underneath a vocal melody that, itself, fades away to a breath as it utters the words.
Although there is an undercurrent of concern, it is the track’s video that darkens the mood as we follow a disconcerting snapshot into the difficult life of very obvious outsider. Fade away for a moment with this new one from the Derry-based producer. -- The Line Of Best Fit
