A track from Chris Ianuzzi‘s new album Maze, released today, “March of Madness” enjoyably showcases Ianuzzi’s eclectic stylistic charm, reminiscent of The Fall. Everything from electro-pop and industrial rock tones to operatic samples linger through the track’s colorful production, also expressed via the music video above. The video itself utilizes AI technology, specifically being created by “an AI clip-guided diffusion algorithm.”
The introduction, with the snarling vocal lead and operatic glimpse, assembles thereafter into a clanking electro-pop assortment. Menacing, distorted vocals — reminiscent of The Fall’s Hex Enduction Hour — drives to a more rhythmically involved section past the first minute. The track’s sprawling, electro-industrial aesthetic proves convincing amidst Ianuzzi’s vocal additions and idiosyncratic production.
