I’ve got one last post for the evening. I couldn’t resist, after hearing The Birthday Masscacre’s “Beyond,” while driving home from work tonight. I was there kinda late, working through some project complications. But all good now. Plus, I got the previous two posts done. As well as gathered some insight into a few astrological issues.
Anyway, I digress. The Birthday Massacre are a Canadian indie rock outfit that feels very of the ’80s new wave movement, mixing new romantic and goth elements into a pleasurable concoction of melodic aural witchcraft. Their music’s sometimes thrown in the darkwave category. But I find it much too playful and upbeat to reside there. If anything, it’s a bit on the curiouser and curiouser side of subversion, reflecting all the whimsical colors of the dark.
Take the track in question … “Beyond” is a blissful blast of synth-pop, with a bit of a sonic supernatural bent. There’s also a bit of rock, minus the indie, populating the sound. And vocalist Chibi can definitely sing. She’s not what you’d expect from a band called The Birthday Massacre.
“Beyond” is from 2014 album “Superstition.” If you like this single, feel free to check out some others, like “Kill the Lights,” ” Happy Birthday,” and “Goodnight.” Until then, see where this one takes you …
