After his recent signing to Secretly Canadian, Makeness, aka Kyle Molleson, has dropped the new single, “Day Old Death,” from his forthcoming full-length out next year. The track follows the “thundering slice of electronica” of “Loud Patterns”.
“Makeness” on “Day Old Death”
“‘Day Old Death’ took me by surprise. It was a Sunday and I was preparing to leave the studio in Scotland after a few days off work. The whole time there had been overshadowed by the passing of a colleague a week prior,” Molleson comments. “I sat down at the Korg PS-3100 synth needing a break from very slowly packing flight cases and tripping over cables. It has this micro tuning function where you can slightly detune each note and everything starts to sound a little more interesting and meaningful. Something about the pensive, meandering drone the synth was conjuring connected me with the feeling of hearing the news from the week before. I think pouring that emotion into music was the best way I could express how I felt.”
