59 Perlen & Ingeborg – “Siren”


A striking collaborative single out today from Swiss artist 59 Perlen and Dutch artist Ingeborg, “Siren” intoxicates with its heady, soulful electronic sound. Ingeborg’s commanding vocal presence emerges right away, traversing into lyrics that muse on “the weight of the world,” drowning one into a “world underwater.” Listeners are invited to this aquatic locale, stimulating amidst lush rhythmic momentum and sporadic synth swells. Buzzing synth components at the one-minute turn send chills as “the weight of the world,” vocals appear with a murkier entrancement.

A ghostlier vocal presence sends chills into a beautiful conclusion, where flickering reflections of synths build into a resonating silence. The effort represents an engrossing success from 59 Perlen and Ingeborg, who balance lush soundscapes with a grooving percussive pulse alongside bursts of vocal ascension. Impactful, poignant themes persist alongside, emphasizing the power of love and compassion within a world ripe with tumult.

59 Perlen caught our ears this past December as well with the track “Horizon.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
