The first taster of Scrimshire’s highly anticipated third opus, “Bight”, exemplifies progressions made both as a singer-songwriter and producer since his acclaimed second album, “The Hollow”.
“Convergent” is a tense, taut and hypnotic ode to a strained and suffocating relationship, that also questions blind faith, in all its senses. Scrimshire’s trademark guitars make way for doom laden synths, snappy drums and the man himself’s mournful yet extremely hooky vocals. Shades of James Blake perhaps, but this is the first glimpse of an album that definitely has a sound all of his own.
Remixes are to come from man-of-the-moment Yosi Horikawa, Mazoulew and more. “Bight” will be released in May, and Scrimshire will be performing a live show at The Shacklewell Arms in London’s fashionable Dalston on March 14th. All to come, but in the meantime, enjoy this early slice of synthesised soul from Wah Wah 45’s finest.
