White Ring- "IxC999"

Sorry for the lack of updates, finals + summer bro10 kick off + work has been consuming my life. I did start my summer off the right way by seeing the one and only Moby at Webster Hall on Friday, one of the sickest dj sets I have ever seen. Anyway, here's a quick post about this amazingly creepy song "IxC999" by duo White Ring. Imagine if The Knife's "Heartbeats" sounded more like their darker work on Silent Shout instead of the upbeat club banger that it is. Then imagine something about 10x more creepy than that. "IxC999" starts off with ominous blaring synths before morphing into a haunting mix of distorted female vocals, steel drums, and rhythmic gun shots a la "Paper Planes." Kinda plays like a creation of the evil twins of Crystal Castles. Fans of Silent Shout, Zola Jesus, Cocteau Twins should check this one out, but beware: it's not for the faint of heart.
