Interview With The Voyeurist
SLEEPLESSNESS, SUBSISTENCE AND GNAWING UNCERTAINTY
In existence for little over a year, The Voyeurist was born out of frustration and disaffection in the heart of our nation’s scratty capital. Sarah (vocals) and Richard (guitars/electronics) met anonymously and bonded over previous musical escapades and escapes. If names are an indicator of anything then The Voyeurist points to a sense of exclusion and excommunication, deigned to be forever looking in rather than welcomed warmly.
Having already built up an extensive back catalogue of remixes for the likes of Au Palais, Kool Thing, Visions Of Trees (See their intraview here) and Worship, their self-produced debut EP Hexed dropped last month. Recorded, mixed and mastered against a backdrop of sleeplessness, subsistence and gnawing uncertainty, smooth atmospherics give way to harsh-noise influenced destruction, and disaffection and hard-clipped industrialised percussion stomp brazenly next to clean and diminutive guitar phrasings, whilst old and cracked drum machines wince to a halt like wounded animals.
