Infinity Shred: Sanctuary

Infinity Shred: Sanctuary

New alias of chiptune duo Starscream, who had to change their name for legal reasons. This has some element of 8-bit-ness to it, but it’s mostly epic synth-heavy post-rock with downtempo electronic beats, definitely closer to earlier M83, but with post-dubstep/trap drum programming, and some trance arpeggios. Also vaguely reminds me of 65daysofstatic, but I’m not sure why, because it’s not as fast, furious, loud, or guitar-heavy, but it is definitely some form of epic electronic post-rock. Definitely feels like late-night stargazing music. The few of us who actually liked the last Emeralds album will be into this too. “Shadow Jeweler” and “Straylight” seem pretty similar melody-wise, and “Mapper” and “Sanctuary” have synth arpeggios that are maybe a little closer to Umberto and other horror-disco revivalists.
