Inspired by The Chromatics and Munch’s famous engraving after which they’re named, bassist / vocalist Lucinda King and Danny Brady on synthesizer and drum programming initially sought to make their own style of hazy Italo-pop, but ended up with something much darker. With guitarist / drummer Hope Robertson, the group fills their shadowy sound world with Rohypnol drums, melancholic synth arpeggios, reverb-drenched guitars, and sighing vocal melodies. This hypnotic album, wrapped in tactile electro-acoustic languor, was recorded in the cavernous rooms of Dunedin’s None Gallery, a spiritual home to many of New Zealand’s experimental and electronic upstarts.
