Next up on Sir Prurient's Hospital Productions label is one from duo Clay Rendering, aka Wolf Eyes alum Mike Connelly alongside artist Tara Connelly. Their music sounds like extreme music being reduced into a dreamt-up ambience, blurred together but never cut of its melodies or extremities. We Are Aware is a 12" that mixes black metal and shoegaze but not in the Deafheaven way. There's a b-side of dejected coldwave to go with it.
7/10 Ant Staff review, 28 July 2016
Husband and wife do Mike and Tara Connelly return to Dominick Ferknow’s Hospital Productions label for a 3-track EP produced by Fernow himself.
We Are Away is a slice of gothy Coldwave pop driven by rudimentary drum machine, fuzzy guitar and icy melodic touches. ‘Never Pass Away’ has a raw/ live take to the production, almost like super minimal black metal with anguished vocal from Mike.
My pick of the three tunes is over on the flip; a stark contrast to the first side with the instrumental/ electronic cut ‘Towards Motionless’ which is cinematic ambient/ classical that reminds me a wee bit of Aphex Twin’s ‘On’.
