Our comrades Consouling Sounds have started a new label called Circuits that will focus on releasing electronic-inspired music. The first project that they will be putting out is a rad band called FÄR, and today we are premiering their new video “Last Straw” below. An-Sofie De Meyer’s vocals are freaking awesome – I think this is why I keep hitting the repeat button. Read why this label was started and the game plan they have in store for you!
Ever since its inception, Consouling Sounds has focused on genre-defying music. Whether it was avant-garde, post, drone and ambient or metal, Consouling Sounds was looking for dark and moody tunes that urgently needed a platform. We have always steered away from electronic music, because we felt that we had very little affinity with that side of the musical landscape. However, electronic music has been evolving. We have been evolving. And now 10 years into our existence, we feel that Consouling Sounds and electronic music finally have found each other.Some really exciting music came our way, and despite it being electronic music, the aesthetic and feel matches perfectly with what Consouling Sounds has come to stand for.To make a distinction between the main Consouling Sounds catalogue and the selected electronic artists, we will brand the electronic releases as “Circuits, by Consouling Sounds”. Our very good friend and amazing artist Philippe Lantoine (Gummy PiracyLeague) designed the perfect logo for us: opposed to the crescent sun that marks the Consouling Sounds catalogue, the Circuits releases will be recognized by a crescent moon, bringing us full cycle.The Circuits catalogue will bring a very selective palette of electronic music that also pushes the boundaries of the genre, and touches on the same aesthetics Consouling Sounds maintains. The very first release bearing the Circuits mark will be the debut album ’SALUTE’ of Belgian duo FÄR.
This remarkable duo consisting of An-Sofie De Meyer (vocals, sampler) and Tim De Gieter (synths, beats, production) seamlesslyblend pop vibes with trap- and witch house influences. This results in dark, bass-heavy tracks that hold you by the throat whilst dancing.Having only been around since 2016, their relentless work ethic and intense live shows already got them to open for acts such as ABRA (US, Aweful Records) & Tropic Of Cancer (US). FÄR has quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with.FÄR is ready to release their debut album ‘SALUTE’ through Circuits by Consouling Sounds on October 13th.The album was recorded and mixed at Much Luv Studio (Brutus, High Hi), and mastered by James Plotkin (The Melvins, Sunn 0))) ).
