Chasms
Chasms Drenched in the dreaminess of early 4AD, Chasms takes familiar shoegaze affectations to biting temperatures, arriving intently at dysphoric soundscapes and swollen compositions. From whispered vocals to droning bass, and guitar that's as blistering as it is lush – all elements are commanded by a blown-out drum machine that throbs with industrial authority. Culling influences from the avant underbelly of decades past, the dark San Francisco duo released their debut "When It Comes" cassette EP on Dream Recordings in the summer of 2012, followed the "Bad Evolution" 12" single on Sleep Genius in December 2012.
