Synthetic Nature Noise Pop Death Hags Death Hags has seen the light of day on Brutal in the past with a couple of news articles, but never before have I had the pleasure of reviewing her music. The self-described interstellar, psychedelic, noise pop artist has just unveiled their latest album "BIG GREY SUN #3" for Bandcamp Friday. The eight track album is host to a variety of stellar hits, but 'Synthetic Nature' was the one chosen for the music video treatment. Thus, that's the subject of today's review. And, let me tell you, after listening to this track over and over again, I have found myself in a state of bliss. 'Synthetic Nature' begins with a whirl of serene ambiance and trickling water as curious electronics bleep into existence. Birds chirp around the half-minute mark which continues a journey into tranquility. Light synths roam in the background as Death Hags' spoken word vocals, almost whispered, delicately follow the flow. A light techno beat dribbles in the background which perfectly assimilates with the cool texture 'Synthetic Nature' is attempting to bring out. The chorus of the track brings in robotic vocals which reverberate amongst itself and reflects the theme. The final moments of the song fade out and the journey ends. All in all, 'Synthetic Nature' is a beautiful song with a trippy video attached. I feel as if fans of Desire, Chromatics, and Glass Candy will flock to Death Hags with ease. They're under a very similar umbrella of delightful independent pop with an ambient edge. I do hope to see Death Hags' music come properly to CD or vinyl format one day, as most of their merch is sold out. If you dig this song, make sure you dive into "BIG GREY SUN #3", as that's filled to the brim with all sorts of goodies. 8 out of 10! This review was commissioned through our Ko-fi page. 450

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
