Scratchy chord swells overwhelm a looping sense of decay churning beneath the waves of “Night Owl.” Los Angeles’s VESSITT fuses moments of enticing aural drama with a tranquilizing sonic undercurrent. This music has sharp edges around its lithe flow, echoed in the visual dichotomies presented throughout this captivating video. Movement is a constant, bright color shading the spaces between guitar exorcisms and lucid synth sound walls. VESSITT leans into abrasive, angled timbres, never obscuring the view of encroaching darkness while leaning into its melodic allure.
Chapter One: Abstractions will be released on November 10 by Dragon’s Eye Recordings. Pre-order HERE.
