CREMATION LILY - DREAMS DRENCHED IN STATIC Vinyl LP
Cremation Lily's Dreams Drenched In Static exists at the horizon of consciousness and heavy experimental music. Through the use of frenetic vocal melodies, tape degradation, and guitar noise, the album documents the liminal moments at the edge of sleep, and the distressing thoughts that often accompany late-night R.E.M. disturbances. The lyrics were largely written at three in the morning and serve to evoke the depression and meditations on death that seem to haunt these early hours.Based in London, England, Cremation Lily is the project of Zen Zsigo. Like many Flenser artists, Cremation Lily is difficult to classify. Starting out in 2009 as a sample-based ambient artist, Cremation Lily has evolved to incorporate more rock-based guitar instrumentation and influence from a wide range of genres such industrial, shoegaze, tape loops, noise, and power electronics.Although rooted in electronic music, Cremation Lily shares similarities with other Flenser artists like Planning For Burial and Have a Nice Life, as well as black metal. Dreams Drenched In Static is the first Cremation Lily album to primarily rely on guitar and vocal-based contributions, and is the project's most intentional and developed work to date.
