From the opening synths I knew the song, “Capsize” was going to be one hell of a haunting track. The bass and vocals enter and the tone is immediately set.
There’s something pulling about this Big Black Delta track. Perhaps it’s the searing guitars and crunchy synthesizers, the 80′s influence and anthemic nature. I love the slow, menacing build up and the drawl of Jonathan Bates. Off of Bbdlp1, “Capsize” pushes out industrial sounding electronic music that’s full of grit.
