CINDYTALK - silver shoals of light 10"
from the original press release:
BLUESANCT is incredibly excited that the third release in our ART SINGLES series is by one of our all-time favourite artists, CINDYTALK. This time it will be a 10", to facilitate the sonics involved. One-sided vinyl with screen-printed b-side and printed sleeve.
The concept behind this series is to celebrate the 10th year of the label with a series of releases that give us excuse to work with some of our biggest influences. And there is hardly a larger influence on my own music and art than GORDON SHARP and CINDYTALK.
‘silvershoalsoflight’ is quintessential CINDYTALK… written and produced by GORDON SHARP and MATT KINNISON… drum machine ticks along gorgeous bass pulses up against Gordon’s vocals… leading to a climax of bliss and dissonance.
For those not familar with CINDYTALK’s work, it is a sound that straddles several genres at once… ambient abstract industrial cinematic glitch post-punk… Gordon Sharp was at one time perhaps best known for lending his angelic voice to several tracks on THIS MORTAL COIL’s classic masterpiece ‘It’ll End In Tears’ (4AD, 1984), but those tracks are nothing but a footnote in history for Sharp and Cindytalk… since 1982, Cindytalk has recorded half a dozen fiercely challenging albums of devastating beauty… and there is no end in sight for this seminal group.
