“Smile That Killed A Country” First Impressions
The track begins with I Ya Toyah’s vocals layered against with a retro synth accompaniment. I Ya Toyah recites the lyrics “I can hear you like a distant scream” with a sensual yet powerful tone. The opening seconds to the track feels hypnotizing while creating a vibe perfect for an indie film soundtrack. As “Smile That Killed A Country” continues it merits raising the volume and ignoring the complaint from neighbors.
The harsh vocals provided by Mach Fox enters at the forty-five-second mark and compliments the sexiness aesthetic the track offers. The duet flows in concert, a sinister embrace of vocals influenced with human emotion, not vocoders. Yet, reverb, flange and a hint of creative distortion add the spice to pull this auditory spellbinder.
“Smile That Killed A Country” has a sense of familiarity, it is the blend of multi-genre flavor that comes together. The synths are calming and when the levels intensify it does not feel overpowering. To reiterate, I Ya Toyah and Zwaremachine have a special creative chemistry and as any aficionado of the Industrial music genre I look forward to their upcoming collaborations.
