[Premiere] Analog Monoxide – Playing Tag

posted by: Olinger New Music Daily

Nordic chameleon singer/producer Analog Monoxide’s tunes vacillate between experimental electronica and blues-tinged Americana, and fall somewhere between Portishead and Tom Waits.  His lead-off single “Playing Tag”, with its swelling synths and steady beats, is ambience and fine tuned electronica mixed into a blender and chilled to perfection. The Ørsta-based artist, known locally as Stian Høyberg, frames the powdery synth-line and glitchy percussion with a mournful confession of lovelorn lyrics before the track gives way to a lush, organ-tinged coda. Høyberg’s sophomore album, Songs For the Road, is due out April 15th and boasts more of his ace eclectic meanderings.
