Ticking toasters, cobblestones against fences, a kalimba in superslowmotion, axe on wood, music boxes with broken teeth. Every hit, chrunch, crack and bang is extrated for all kinds of over- and undertones, when they are chopped and twisted into strange symphonies with synthesizers and machines that are pushed beyond their limits. Unrecognisable recordings finds new shapes in a weathered twillight of oppressing noise and longing drones. All this paints the contours of the fleeting thoughts that is the driving force behind M422.
The music finds its origin in the dark attics of Copenhagen, along with its creator Banders Duckpow. 2018 saw M422 playing concerts on venues of all sizes, from small basements to festivals like Uhørt18 and Eter festival (SE), and everything inbetween, as well as recording new material to be released during 2019. The first track from this release can be found here.
The plans for 2019 includes the release of more tracks where the first got released in January: ”0Ø”can be found on Pattern Abuse’s Compilation 2: Nordic Ambient. Additionally, an EP will arrive during the spring.
Praise for M422:
”The bass pads along this slow-moving acid trip. Warped voices cry out, their pitch a fine line between human voice and music. Something that sounds like a stick hitting a brick wall comes in as reverberating gongs intensify, making the song feel like a trance.”
Miko Ann, Magntic Magazine About the track 0Ø
”‘M422 – 0Ø’ feels tortured and ritualistic, droning bass and ghoulish vocals wail in the distance, certainly not traditional and one of my favourite cuts.”
Daniel Thomas, Loose Lips.
