‘Egyptian Darkness’ is the new single from the Scandi female artist with vision called Louise Lemón. Although the music itself doesn’t resemble anything Egyptian at all, there is an message to the name. It does however sound dark, mysterious and mystical.
In the style of Lana Del Rey, The Kills and PJ Harvey’s open and airy noir- sound, the production takes the listener on a psychedelic journey throughout. The drumbeat is slow yet assertive, the scuzzy guitars remain ethereal yet powerful, and Louise’s vocals slide across the song with a presence which simply cannot be ignored.
Produced by Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Thurston Moore), ‘Egyptian Darkness’ sounds moody, compelling and resembles Randalls’s previous work. Whilst Sunn O))) is clearly a huge influence in the production, the songwriting also draws elements from the Seattle drone mavericks.
