TROPIC OF CANCER + OBSEQUIES
Minimalistic synth tracks, dream pop and psychedelia from California.
TROPIC OF CANCER (US)
Somewhere between raw romanticism of Joy Division, stark shoegaze fairytales of Lycia and cold aesthetics of minimal wave lies the melancholically beautiful sound of Tropic of Cancer. The woman behind this project is Camella Lobo. Tropic Of Cancer sound is quite minimal - moody guitar drones float over pulsing coldwave beats, while Camella's dreamy voice merges with the whole atmospheric soundscape, whispering tales about love and our fragile existence. However, many sonic layers exist here and the Tropic of Cancer sound is indeed close to ambient or drone. Every track is a dark and abstract symphony.
With an obsession for perverted beauty, obsequies act as a go-between intimacy and intimidation, while gentle minimalistic piano try to find a way out from the suffocative whirling mass of noise, ethereal voices resound through silence awaiting for the blast of ephemeral scattering beats.
