Convergent by Scrimshire
The first taster of Scrimshire’s highly anticipated third opus, “Bight”, exemplifies progressions made both as a singer-songwriter and producer, pushing forward from his acclaimed second album, “The Hollow”.
“Convergent” is a tense, taut and hypnotic ode to a strained and suffocating relationship, that also questions blind faith, in all its senses. Scrimshire’s trademark guitars make way for doom-laden synths, snappy drums and the man himself with some mournful yet extremely hooky vocals. Shades of James Blake perhaps, but this is the first glimpse of an album that definitely has a sound all of his own.
A trio of sublime remixes come courtesy of Yosi Horikawa, Mazoulew and Blue Movies. “Bight” will be released in May, and Scrimshire will be performing a number of live shows and DJ sets across Europe this summer. All to come, but in the meantime, enjoy this early slice of synthesised soul from Wah Wah 45’s finest

“Unique new tune! Scrimshire steps forward with a post electronic jazz piece of art, but with a view to his songwriting talent.. Ace.” Chris Ex (Up’n’Loud Radio / Musica-Re.blogspot.de / Soul Magazine, Germany)
