Franco-Australian, self described, ‘International Woman of Misery’, the sardonic, the singular, the willfully particular, Chløë Black drops self released, hypno-cryptic, electro alt pop gem,“Spaceman”.
Graceful melodic ambients, and contrasting sunken piano counts, forcefully blunted to obscure, saunter opulent on shunted snippet beats and stuttered percussive ripples, effected. Orbiting elliptical around a black hole sun, this grunge infused, EDM turned inside out, sonic spacewalk in freefall, resonates magnificent in ‘giving zero f**ks’ gravity. Contradiction brought to Art, through imitating life ; a musical personality borderline-ed, daring to be maligned ; iconic beauty, framed ugly, oddity extraordinary.
“Spaceman” stands tall on broken legs ; shifting from pop consumable to composition ‘chart unusable’, an aural testament to the conflicted nature of its creator ; kaleidoscope of contradiction, singalong in introspection, in defiance of expectation, Chløë Black is writing the hymn sheet, from which we all gratefully sing.
