This is Boris Gladkikh's opus. His sprawling concept album on mortality and resurrection. It's dark, it's moody.
It's signature Gladkill.
After a long absence from the limelight, California's Gladkill emerges from the shadows with a stripped down, broken open tome of sweeping synths, rumbling bass, and most importantly, heart and depth. After Death, which drops October 11th, is an emotionally-driven introspection all done up in shades of black and grey. Somber at times, but not oppressively brooding or, god forbid, emo, this collection of tracks is an emotionally mature release from an older, wiser Boris.
Today's premiere, "Feel So," is actually one of the thicker tracks on the release. Featuring Erica Dee, the contemporary west coast bass sound is present, but there is much more substance than a typical banger release (which we still love, but hey, sometimes you're feeling wanting a little more). The cut isn't short on evocative melodies, pensive vocal flavors, or zest. It could still rock a set.
Which is exactly what Boris Gladkill is planning on doing this month and next.
