Chthonic Streams presents:
The Holy Circle
Terence Hannum (Locrian), Erica Burgner-Hannum, and Nathan Jurgenson (screen vinyl image)
“While the phrase, “dark pop” is easily applied here, it doesn’t begin to describe the complexities of THE HOLY CIRCLE’s sound. At times, one feels as though this music could have come straight out of 1983, and at others, the forlorn keyboard strains and heartbreaking chorals are achingly modern. Existing beyond the constraints of designations such as “goth” or “synthwave,” while the sonic palette may be—broadly speaking—downtempo and sombre, THE HOLY CIRCLE defies simplistic genre definitions, projecting a numinous aura of pure light.”
Full-length debut coming later in 2017 from Annihilvs Power Electronix
An A/V experimental sacred music duo comprised of Christine L. Papania and Ben Forest. With a focus on interspersing the ritualism of ancient spirituality and the secular iconography of the postmodern, ARIADNE flawlessly bridge the two worlds through their intricate musical compositions, striking digital visuals, and captivating live performances.
Robert Galbraith (aka Raab Codec) and Elizabeth Virosa (also of Pattern Behavior) create haunted synth-experimental electronics, blending ominous cinematic ambience and darkly moving harmonies with intermittent but powerful modular squelches and lumbering beats. With 5 releases on Component Recordings and 2 on France’s M-tronic Label, they are vital to the burgeoning Providence electronic scene.
“Whote creates a style of music that is very experimental and ambient-sounding while also bringing in elements of drone, harsh noise, field recordings, electric guitars and some metal influences to create an album that defies categorization and the production also sounds very dark, raw and powerful” 8/10 – ExtremeUndergroundMusicZine
