Exclusive Stream :: Dear Time’s Waste
November 26th 2012
Considering you’ve found your way onto the Flog, it’s probably safe to assume you like your music brand spankin’ new. Yes? Well you’re in luck, as we’ve got the premiere stream for Dear Time Waste’s sophomore album Some Kind Of Eden right here, days before its Australian release. Because there’s nothing quite like listening to fresh new tunes with the added satisfaction of ‘not that I’m a hipster but I heard that way before it was released‘ cred, amirite?
Dear Time’s Waste is the stunning project of Aucklander Claire Duncan. Her latest album is a refreshing take on electronic music, void of most of the glitchy, beepy sounds we’ve almost come to expect of the genre. Some Kind Of Eden is sparse and mystical, and although it may seem predictable for a music review to use a word like juxtaposition, there really isn’t a better way to sum up the overall sound that Duncan achieves. Some Kind Of Eden manages to be dark yet light, whilst combining mechanical sounds with naturally haunting vocals, vocals which at times seem eerily Sarah Blasko-esque.
Having been described as some sort of early-Cure and Cocteau Twins hybrid, the latest offering from Dear Time’s Waste is for those who like their music light, transient yet slightly gothic. Enough with all the words though, give it a listen below.
