Mushy – Faded Heart
aaamusic | On 10, Mar 2011
In a haze of darkness and depression, Mushy’s Faded Heart marks a return to the pale and mysterious sound of ‘80’s Dark Wave. The track is sumptuously textured and retains the truly macabre sound that gothic music has been lacking in recent years. Its arrangement is genuinely unnerving; a mixture of haunting vocals, throbbing beats and eery electronics. The result is a sound that is at once morbid and romantic; a sinister track that, at times, makes for an uncomfortable listen.
A record oozing in nostalgia, Mushy takes a controlled approach to music resulting in a sound that clearly draws from the past whilst not sounding dated in its place in the present day. This one is not for the faint hearted.
