Blindness Vocalist Beth Rettig Announces Debut EP ''The Desert'' From New Project Where We Sleep

14th of April 2019, 12:15

London-based dark and dynamic pop project Where We Sleep has announced their debut EP 'Experiments In The Dark'. Ahead of that, they presented the lead single 'The Desert', a jaded and winding psych-infused track traversing similar addictive territory such as PJ Harvey, Curve and Garbage.

At Where We Sleep's core is Beth Rettig, perhaps best known as the vocalist of alt-pop darlings Blindness. But this project also involves collaborations with various other artists. 'The Desert' sees Rettig collaborate with Axel Ray of United Ghosts (and also The Black Windmill and Cadet A) on lead guitar.

Dark and rough around the edges, this EP combines synth and live elements. This release also features contributions from Ben Pritchard, formerly of The Fall and currently in Manc Floyd, and former Blindness bandmate Debbie Smith of Curve, Echobelly and SPC ECO fame (and also Snowpony with My Bloody Valentine's Debbie Googe and Moonshake's Katharine Gifford).

'Experiments In The Dark' is a five-track offering, recorded in studios between London and Manchester. This follows up Where We Sleep's single 'The First One', released in August 2018, preceded by Where We Sleep's debut single 'Veins' in June 2018, also featuring Debbie Smith, and b-side 'Crawl', mixed in Addis Ababa by Guy Fixsen.

Raised in Africa (Nigeria, Botswana and South Africa) and saying goodbye to the days of her Johannesburg band High, Beth Rettig returned to the UK in 2000 and eventually hooked up with Debbie Smith to form Blindness. They had a good run until playing their final gig in 2016, followed by 'The Monsoon EP' in 2017, their final release.

"When Blindness ended - solely down to a change in my personal life - I didn't know if I was going to write again. Where We Sleep is the result of discovering that you don't know how not to make music," says Beth Rettig.

Rettig's music is rooted in an array of influences, including Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Curve, EMA, Nine Inch Nails, Jesus and Mary Chain, Garbage, Kate Bush, Massive Attack, Patti Smith, PJ Harvey, Pete International Airport, White Rose Movement and The Fall.

About 'The Desert' video, Rettig explains: "The road footage in The Desert video was taken when Axel and myself took a road trip to the Mojave Desert in California, with trips to Pioneertown and Joshua Tree National Park. It seemed a shame not to use those visuals, albeit affected, for the song. As the song came first, it was a cool realisation that two people who did a song about driving through the desert together were taking a road trip through the desert together."

'Experiments In The Dark' is slated for release on May 31st and will be available across digital stores and streaming platforms. It can also be pre-ordered via Where We Sleep's own Bandcamp site.

NEWS THRILLSVILLE Releases Dark Electronic Single, 'Second Sleep'

THRILLSVILLE Releases Dark Electronic Single, 'Second Sleep'

10th of April 2019, 11:17

LA based Dark Synth artist THRILLSVILLE has released the debut track off of his upcoming, yet to be named album, "Second Sleep."

“Reworking and reinterpreting a song wasn’t a stretch for me. It’s kind of like taking a theme and varying it when I’m composing for film, TV or video games. It’s fun to take the same source material and put it in a completely different musical world. I’ve always loved Stolen Babies’ version of 'Second Sleep' and getting Dominique from SB to add background vocals to my version made it really special for me. It wouldn’t have been right without her. I feel like the dreamy and moody quality of the original rock version translated even better with this dark dance version.” - THRILLSVILLE

“Hot off the presses, Thrillsville has a new single called 'Second Sleep,' and it may be my new favorite song. Almost impossible to pigeonhole, this track is equal parts industrial tinged Stabbing Westward and Sisters of Mercy-esque Goth rock. That’s a poor attempt to categorize what Thrillsville has pulled out with this song, but wherever it’s meeting in the middle is a sonically perfect place and I want more of it. I can only hope that this is a teaser of things to come!” - Echosynthetic

Thrillsville is the industrial music / dark wave solo project of Rani Sharone. Known for his dark cabaret band Stolen Babies, Sharone has collaborated and performed with Puscifer, Marilyn Manson, and TV/film composer Tyler Bates. A fellow in the Sundance Film Composers Lab Sharone also produced music for highly acclaimed Films/TV Shows including Samurai Jack, Ray Donovan, American Ultra, My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea, and more.

“Second Sleep,” the first single off Thrillsville’s upcoming album, is following his horror themed debut ep, Haunt Music, which spawned the Claymation videos for “In the Hall of the Chainsaw King” and “Lycanthrope” as well as the 3-D animated video for “Sirens.”

"Conjuring up tantalizing and warped soundscapes...Thrillsville’s music sounds like it's been ripped directly from a melted B-movie VHS tape. It's ghoulish, grizzly, and just plain great" - Phoenix New Times

"A treasure of an EP... 'Haunt Music' is like watching a horror movie with your eyes closed. Images of Freddy Krueger, Jason, Michael Myers fill your mind as the rough guitar tones, the creepy synths, and sinister beats wash over you." - Victim of Sound

"...manic carnival music" - The Hollywood Reporter

“Punctuated with a superb eighties influenced instrumental score from Rani Sharone, [...] has an irresistible charm that sweeps over you” - Biff Bam Pop!
