Knives are proud to present the debut release from Canadian artist Obsequies, entitled Organn.
At its core, Organn is a record about love and duality. Taking inspiration from Isidore-Lucien Ducasse's poem Les Chants de Maldoror, the record is antagonistic yet often drops its temper to reveal blistered beauty within the chaos. Such are the condradictory elements within the compositions themselves: widescreen claustrophobia; glimmering sludge; piercing VHS ambience.
Visuals come courtesy of French mixed-media artist, Thomas Hauser. Hauser's imagery similarly evokes retrograde surrealism and further insists on a narrative at work here, with obscured characters playing out alongside mantric piano, filmic vox and hyperspeed jungle.
