London's Burnt Pixels - "Cathexis" A Glimpse Of Things To Come


















London's Burnt Pixels, the moniker for dynamic duo Ian Brzozowski and Benjamin Hooper released the track Cathexis late last year. It is a glimpse into their forthcoming album "Tropisms" coming out this year and if this peek into their musical psyche is any indication of the artistry on this new collection of songs then I am going to be one damn happy camper as last year's The Hollow Down By The Flare was one of my favorite albums of last year.

Burnt Pixels musical aesthetic is not that easy to pin down. In Cathexis the boys create a sense of wonder that hovers sadly around you. The melody and tender lyrics percolate over double time bass lines, sprightly played guitar lines and snare driven drums. More than once goosebumps skate over my skin as the sounds push and pull against each other creating a dense emotional tone. Ian and Benjamin I absolutely love this track.
