Listen: Daughn Gibson – You Don't Fade

24 May 2013, 10:58 | Written by Dan Carson

Razor-throated ex-trucker, Daughn Gibson, will release second album Me Moan on 9 July. The first in his new Sub Pop surroundings looks set to draw on even broader palette of dark influences than debut LP, All Hell.

Recent offering ‘The Sound of Law’ saw Gibson milking every last molecule of oxygen from his smoke-blackened lungs; his booming croon slicing through the chattering post-punk guitar licks and prickly percussion. Next single ‘You Don’t Fade’ treads a murkier path with strangled hip-hop samples chopped into throbbing, pulmonic bass notes and trickling hi-hats.

Gibson’s ghostly baritone sounds richer than ever before; it overwhelms the senses, disorientating, swarm-like. We’re probably going to need a new name for these unnerving, experimental sounds. Elegiac-electro anyone?
