Music without lyrics is one of those genres that, without proper due care and attention, can remain elusive. If I can’t sing along to a song, then what is the point? Well let me tell you, it may take a while to click, but when it does it’s GREAT.

Take Darlington duo Analogue Blood, for instance. Their electronic infused rock is certainly light on the lyrics, but their ability to construct and carefully formulate a track using the rhythm and beats and its cement is exceptional. They’ll be able to prove that in forthcoming EP Kill Those Beats – a paradoxical name if ever there was one. Lead single Insomnia captures the claustrophobic feeling of the night-time condition with heavy drum, trance-inducing wub-wubs, and a smattering of vocals from ‘unofficial’ third Chris Davidson, which act more like another musical element incorporated into the soundscape than a grounding moment.

With music like this, it’s easy to see how they secured slots at big events like Whitby Goth Weekend and Goth City Festival – their vibes are perfect. Hopefully they’ll be able to celebrate the release of Kill Those Beats in their home town – but if not I’d highly recommend getting out the LEDs and glowsticks, knocking the lights off, and giving it its due appreciation in a safe and socially distanced manner.

Analogue Blood release Kill Those Beats EP on 9th November
