Modern Amusement – Cold As Ice EP : “Deep Electro Infused Music”
Deep Electro infused music…
The “Cold As Ice EP” is the latest Modern Amusement release out on No. 19 Music and is a fine example of deep electro infused music. The title track, “Cold As Ice” with its deep easy-going electro bass strolls through the track accompanied by the simple beat. Whilst spacey sounds drift in and out making way for the hypnotic distant vocal that really lifts the track.
“Real Love” seems much lighter, even though its bass is more rugged and rumbly, but those vocal cuts and synths really add a nice feel to the whole real love feeling.
The finally track on the “Cold As Ice EP” is “Lee Roux”, which also carries quite a deep strolling bass. But this track is much more complex than “Cold As Ice” and is layered up with a full array of strange spacey sounds. But to be fair this track never seems too congested, and with a building vocal by Eleanor Kate Jackson of La Roux, this track has a great weirdness to it.
