It seems that Blanck Mass, the project from producer Benjamin John Power isn’t letting the pandemic slow him down. The musician has already made his name powerful with his layered sounds over the years. His last release was the 2019 album Animated Violence Mild and it sealed the artist within the modern music world. Now he’s back with a new album IN FERNEAUX coming in February. If the lead single “Starstuff (Single Edit)” is any indication of the album’s sound, it should be layered with tones galore.
The track has a multitude of tones going into it. The mix of arpeggiated keys and found sounds play well together, showcasing the strengths that the producer brings to his compositions. The way in which the build of the track has these subtle touches keeps it in your head while the tension builds. The vocals are almost hushed before the build pops and reveals a calming tone that’s hard to walk away from. The magnitude of the drop here is immense and should pay off for anyone who checked in for the beginning half of the song.
The single is ready to hear above or wherever you stream music. IN FERNEAUX can be preordered directly from Sacred Bones Records ahead of its February 26 release on various formats.
