Slumber presents Technicolor
Share This Article
Slumber’s beginnings are comparable to the onset of unconsciousness when one slips into dream space. As the first rhythmic overtures fade, we drift on a sensory whirlpool of cascading images emitted from the nether regions of our own consciousness. Abstract visions blend smoothly into sonic texture and are channeled through the melodic mix of Oona Dahl and Amber Cox and the chaotic union manifested by shadows.
It must be stressed that the level of production is intense but, on the other hand, the care of the sounds they release is up to those who do things because they want to and with the time they really need. That’s why it’s about productions that when you approach carefully you get trapped by the halo that it gives off: rare, singular and, here comes the best, powerful, magnetic and danceable. Beats that mark but without burdening us, an oldschool touch (authentic), somewhat eccentric synthesizers and a rather cheerful and festive general tone, are some of the adjectives that we can get out of our sleeves if we want to describe this innovative proposal.
Each track summarizes their intentions on this album, seeking novelty without losing nostalgia, playing with the genre but without falling into predictable tricks, nor the arrogance of those who embrace a genre or mannerism to show they have personality. Paradoxically, to achieve simplicity and lucidity, experience and the ability to free oneself from the limitation of conditioning are required, and this “Technicolor” is a healthy example of this.
