Consonants are cool, and vowels are lame. Here are five artists who agree:
Vowel-less and faceless, the masked producer has a knack for creating pop-friendly bass music that bridges the gap between the underground and mainstream. Arguably the most well-known producer without vowels on this list, SBTRKT just released a live album, out now.
DFRNT’s lack of vowels might not be too different from the stylization of the rest of the artists here, but good God, can he produce some soulful tunes. The Way You Look At Me made it onto our Friday Favorites last week.
Not much is known about this outfit except that he/she/they is/are from New York via Norway and has/have been creating quite a stir on Soundcloud lately.
I’m glad HTRK didn’t stylize their name as “H8RK.” I feel like the obviousness of that spelling would take away from the slow-moving, dark ethos that characterizes their music.
When it comes to journalism, we’re usually told to not curse. For the sake of relevancy in this article, I’m bending those rules: STRFKR is pronounced “Star Fucker,” and they’re super cool and indie. Check it out.
