(((S)))) – ‘The World Of (((S)))’

Unleashing a convincing post-punk sound throughout, the new album The World Of (((S))) shows the darkly atmospheric and memorably melodic sound of Copenhagen-based artist (((S)))).

The album presents as a compilation of past material from the artist’s first two albums, Ghost and Phantom, re-imagined with more modern production. Citing influences like Joy Division, The Cure, and The Jesus & Mary Chain, (((S))) struts a sound here that maintains the darkly engrossing tone of the earlier output, while intensifying the hypnotic rhythmic components in firm post-punk fashion.

The high-quality output is especially evident on album track “Lonely Is The Lighthouse.” A steady clanging bass and percussive pulse craft an intro fondly reminiscent of Joy Division, while the memorable title-referencing chorus reminds of more modern post-punk in the vein of Interpol. A track like “Hungover” touts a more melancholic yearning, showcasing the band’s eclectic tonal reach.

“Lonely Is The Lighthouse” and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of April 2022’ Spotify playlist.
