Derblinker is the Toronto-based duo Iga and Arr’Ess, and they’ve come to hypnotize the world with their pure electronica. Iga is the haunting-voiced lead of the band, giving her aloof vocals to Arr’Ess’ synthetic melancholy vibes. They’ve yet to release a full-length album, though they have three tracks to their name – the most notable being “Shadows”.
This song exudes atmosphere – it comes from every breath in the vocals and every pop of the electric beat. If I could describe it accurately enough, the song is like being underwater in a sleepy state. Not a panicked drowning, but a sense of harmony. Derblinker gives us an artificial lullaby here, and I love it.
