When I first heard the album Psychic by Darkside in 2013, I was immediately obsessed. I played it again and again, taking something different away from each listen.
Now, Jaar has made a new album on his own, Sirens, and I’m obsessed all over again. Sirens isn’t officially out for a few more days, but Jaar is streaming it on a random website for now. Check it out here.
You definitely want to check this one out. It kicks off at a slow, quiet pace, but once it gets going, it’s an unpredictable ride full of synths, drum machines, ambient waves, and even some fairly straightforward vocals.
So give it a listen, OK? You’ll like it. We can be friends and talk about it. It’ll be fun.
