<—- Week 27: The Body – “To Know and To Hide”
Hey everyone. RobBarracuda here, and it’s time to talk about the newest release from the 2016 Adult Swim Singles Program.
I can’t say I’m at all familiar with electronic music producer Chino Amobi (or Dedekind Cut & Rabit, for that matter), so I’ll just jump right into this new song “Negative Fire”. In short: it’s fantasticvally cinematic and menacing. Starting with loud booming thumps akin to a pep rally, the song quickly proceeds to layer in an echoing humanoid voice which sounds like it’s being played through a speakerphone alongside violin-like synths and the sounds of breaking glass. These proceed throughout the entire song, evoking images of a dystopian future with riots breaking out all across the streets of a downtrodden cityscape. Authorities with ridiculous amounts of power march through the streets to exercise an excessive amount of force in order to hunt down fugitives likely hiding among the rioters, and this makes the perfect soundtrack for conveying that kind of feeling. You can stream “Negative Fire” down below, and be sure to download it and the other released singles right here.
