Eruption Artistique – “ICON”


“ICON” is a creative new track and video from Rotterdam-based act Eruption Artistique, impressing previously with the track “HI HA.” The track’s diverse production is a tour-de-force, ranging from minimalist vocal haunts to expansive vigor with brass and psych-pop harmonizing.

Prancing wordless vocals and guitar flashes craft the bouncy beginning. A more spoken-word delivery adds to the dynamic feeling, which propels to a soaring hook with sunshine-friendly glistening. Further, haunting mystique swells into an invigorating rock flair, bolstered by brass and ghostly vocal layers. The single releases alongside a surrealistic video, a penchant of the act’s visual-heavy style. “ICON” is another memorable success from Eruption Artistique.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2023’ Spotify playlist.
