SIGH ARE “FAR BENEATH THE IN-BETWEEN”
I received my review copy of Sigh’s In Somniphobia just was I getting ready to have my wisdom tooth pulled and a week-long Percocet nap taken, which is to say, I have not had time to properly digest it yet. But based on the two tracks which have been released to the public alone — “The Transfiguration Fear” and now, thanks to Decibel, “Far Beneath the In-Between” — I’m not worried about the quality of the band’s latest.
The phrase I always wanna use to describe Sigh is “delightfully weird,” and “Far Beneath” is certainly that — I mean, it’s like some kind of wacky blackened death waltz showtune hybrid. I’m not even sure what some of the instruments I’m hearing are. Parts of it sound almost like friggin’ klezmer music. Or if all the vocals are being done by Mirai Kawashima and Dr. Mikannibal and it just sounds like there’s a third singer there, or if there’s actually three singers. Also, is that a goddamn bird chirping?
Dance slowly here, then weigh-in with your thoughts in the comments section below. In Somniphobia comes out March 12 on Candlelight Records.
