Zeromancer (Norway) - ‘Mourners’ (single)
I won’t write too much about the new Zeromancer track because it will probably get plenty of coverage elsewhere and I’d like to ‘share the love’ by covering a less established indie band too.
But actually we haven’t had chance to feature them before, so it’s probably best if I start at the beginning, which was back in 1999, formed from the influential and excellent Seigmen. With 6 albums behind them they have a huge loyal following, notably in the USA where they’ve toured extensively, and if you haven’t come across them then I’d recommend you start with tracks such as ‘Doppelgänger I Love You’ from their 2009 album Sinners International.
Of course particularly knowledgeable readers will know this already, and their new song ‘Mourners’ is powerful intense industrial rock, backed up by 3 remixes which can easily be listened to sequentially, and which just adds to the potency of the whole thing.
Writing about the song on social media they say “Mourners is a message for the lonely. Lonely in life or lonely at heart. Never give up. There is always a twin soul out there somewhere!”.
Very true indeed, and ‘Mourners’ does take you on a journey, a thumping resonating electronic ride that will jolt you out of the darkness into light. Dark but uplifting, with an almost anthemic chorus.
