This track is so fresh, it’s not even out yet… Boise-native Scissorhands has a knack for dropping the most haunted of bass hits right around Hallow’s Eve – perfect for that Halloween party playlist you’ve been itching to create for a few weeks now. Scissorhands uses an intricate blend of spooky sounds, creepy voice samples and the filthiest of bass lines to create ghostly scores fit for the next big horror film.
Taking inspiration from Danny Elfman, the musical score-meister of The Nightmare Before Christmas and other Tim Burton films, Scissorhands creates his music to be a full-on listener experience; it’s hard not to envision being lost in the creepiest haunted house you’ve ever set foot in, hearts pounding and all. You can purchase this track on November 4th via Beatport, but we’ve heard that October 28th may have a free-download option on his Soundcloud (*hint hint*), just in time for your Hallow’s Eve festivities. You’re welcome.
We first experienced the Australian band Movement live in action while attending our favorite dark heiress, BANKS, last week at Showbox Market. While we knew there would be nothing in comparison to her goddess-like presence, Movement blew the sold-out crowd completely away in a whole new direction. The edgy, slow-pulsing of the live band’s performance mixed with the soulful vocals took our minds and ears to an entirely new level of intensity. Complete with electric guitar solos in their original track, Ivory, Movement is a contagious, highly-addicting act that is perfect for cruising, chilling, and maybe even sexy romancing. Yes, we went there. Dig into Movement and say goodbye to your soul as it once was, forever.
