If badass, creepy techno-electro garage music is what you’re looking for, you’ve come to right place. French duo Alesia (whom you may remember from the track Bird Machine with DJ Snake) released a five-track EP on OWSLA this week. Following suit with many of the recent releases on the label, Andrea is extremely dark and unforgiving in the best ways possible.
Alesia’s Facebook Page says, “We Make Music, Fuck a Genre.” This mentality shines through the many different sounds and influences on the EP, creating a surreal, dark, warehouse-ready collection of tracks.
A favorite on the EP is the industrial-sounding track with eerie vocal cuts, aptly named Industriae. The track is perfectly described on OWSLA’s The Nest as causing the listener to be “transported somewhere deep underground to an Industrial darkness characterized by thick, rolling bassline rips.” The title track, Andrea, is another standout from the EP with it’s hyperactive metallic sounds and mix of creepy, repetitive lyrics. Alongside the track is a perfectly suitable music video (below) that helps to solidify the dark and creepy tones of the song.
