Glacial, barren and difficult, OCTAVIUS arrives in stark contrast to synth pop derived efforts of recent fashion. Informed directly by Bowie’s Low, New Order’s Movement and, as always, Tricky’s Pre-Millennium Tension.“ This is the sound of synth hitting the streets, of hard concrete & urban decay.
NIGHTMARE FORTRESS come armed with an arsenal of guitars, synths and beat machines, providing an eerily danceable foundation for Amiri’s vocals to brood over. To enhance the Fortress, a light show was added, to combat the darkness, to dare the soul. Their debut 12" on Sweating Tapes has received heavy rotation on the PTP radio show...mixed in nicely with labelmates, Animal Bodies, as well as Tropic Of Cancer, Violet Tremors and such 4ad sounds as early Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance.
