BARK – “Cold and Silent” (feat. Krystal Hawes)

The soundscape to BARK’s new single “Cold and Silent” – featuring Krystal Hawes – is nocturnal and unsettling, beginning with ominous, industrial synths that buzz inward, with jagged vocals adding a chilly, icy exterior. Twangy guitars add a bit of serenity around 01:30, with audible enhancement shortly thereafter as buzzing synths and amped-up percussion show more prominence. The synth-laden bridge at 02:15 is infectious and provides some nice structural variation. The increased distortion in guitars as track reaches conclusion adds to the fun, climatic allure. This is a well-done track aesthetically and atmospherically, able to pique my interest from the get-go with its atmosphere and intriguing music video.
