Welcome to a new identity I present to the world- ONLY NOW. This remix was done for the song “Nothing Is Written In The Stars” by Bloodgroup. Make sure to check the incredibly creepy video of the original. This alias explores industrial sounds, space, and darkness.
Bloodgroup are from Iceland on Sugarcane Recordings with a new record “Disquiet EP”, dropping dec 2nd with remixes by Com Truise, Keep Shelly IN Athens, Girl UNit, Renaissance Man.
Icelandic band Bloodgroup have had their powerfully crafted brand of electronic music playing on my stereo on repeat ever since the February release of the Tracing Echoes Album on Sugarcane. The highly developed album was described as majestic ballads, grinding beats, and a pop single or three thrown in for good measure from the likes of Dummy Magazine.
Earmilk (Canada) claims ‘The Icelandic foursome cut icy melodies through the steam on Tracing Echoes, undoubtedly their best to date, but more impressively, one of the best albums of 2013. With its delicate vocals and gemmed synths, (it) strikes closer to early Knife or Zola Jesus than Depeche Mode. Depeche Mode’s shadow might reach far and wide, but their descendants keep finding ways to push gloomy synth-pop into darker, tighter corners.
Bloodgroup rips up the mold, equal parts muscle and machine, the band manages to concoct a mixture that’s just as addictive as anything from Dave Gahan and company’……… And with that……we give you the new Disquiet EP.
