Reliably informed

There’s more Jungian inspiration at work here in Heyman Aums latest song, following on neatly from their EP released back in June. This time examining mythical allegory and an exploration of the psyche via depression. If that sounds a bit weighty then fear not, oozing synths, squishy bass and organic beats sound like they’re taking a journey around the wetter parts of the brain.

Evoking similar artists like The Chromatics at times, the ethereal vocal floats melodically yet abstractedly over the song’s foundations and the mind wanders, drifting into reverie…if only the track was longer. The references may not register immediately but the moods at work will be familiar to fans of directors Lynch and Eggers, and the period music of John Carpenter’s movie soundtracks.
