Punk music posing as electronic music posing as shoegaze? Intrigued? That’s what Chilean musician Ricardo Tobar is shooting for with his new release Trellis. He's released music for labels like Border Community, Traum Schallplatten and In Paradisum in the form EPs, Trellis will be his first full-length for Desire Records on Oct. 28.
“Inspired by mysticism & noise, Ricardo uses old drum machines, analog equipment and also samples he's been storing since some years to create dirty sounding drums, modulated synth sounds and keeping far away from the more expected and polished sounds most artists use,” reads the notes from Desire Records. Tobar wants to escape the squeaky clean hyper vacuum of modern electronic music and make it more dirty, with influences like Nirvana, Sonic Youth and My Bloody Valentine. Check out the song “Garden” below.
