Bézier: Valencia

Bézier’s fifth Dark Entries release starts out in a sort of sci-fi industrial disco mode with “Resurrection”. Then “Past the Marches” has a faster tempo suggesting hi-NRG, but uneasy synths that feel like Aphexian braindance on the verge of a breakdown. “Valencia” is comparable, but more frantic, and just far more together. It’s fast, racing, dramatic, and just absolutely on point. The skipping beat patterns and elegant vocals add a whole lot of zest to “Reservoir”, and “Scrupulous” is a brief jog straight up to the stars. “Ravel” is upbeat but still moderately paced compared to other tracks on here, and it also has an ecstatic “reach for the stars” feeling.
