Try to imagine Ennio Morricone, the Field & Sonic Boom lost in a massive canyon, you’ll get an idea of the vaguely familiar but uncharted territories Sinner DC’s new album might take you to.
Geneva-based hardly classifiable yet unmistakable SINNER DC returns with a new album, and this welcome addition enriches their already extensive discography with another display of both the constant evolution and consistence in quality that the trio is known for.
Their previous albums, most recent of which were released on the English label AI Records, gathered untarnished acclaim from every media outlet, tastemaker and listener who paid attention. SINNER DC’s unique brand of overwhelming electronic music has left very few indifferent and gathered an avid following that’s certain to grow in number and grow fonder at a listen of Future That Never Happened, the new album planned for release this September on Mental Groove Records.
A thread running throughout the album is the story of an imaginary teenage girl running away from home. The tracks unfold subtly and gain in intensity, telling an entire story through revealing atmospheric soundscapes supported here by dreamy vocal layers and there by addictive rhythms. Visions of crossing canyons, escaping a city’s aggressive neon lights, fainting in the desert to wake up to a forest fire, delving in thoughts of the worries caused to loved ones, finding refuge in a valley of greenery, and finally reaching the ocean for a symbolized rebirth, all sceneries and feelings imaginable pour through the speakers as the album plays, transcribed to perfection into a musical journey you can’t help but embark on.
The infallible formula behind SINNER DC’s music has grown even stronger, they merge electronic layers with organic elements to the best effect. SINNER DC’s trademark captivating intensity simply peaks on Future That Never Happened.
