SONG PICK: Chelsey and the Noise – Graveyard

The duo is called Chelsey and the Noise and the song “Graveyard” and they mean it. That becomes clear in the first seconds, when a distorted church bell is joined by noisy guitar riffs. Like Gazelle Twin or Fever Ray, Chelsey and the Noise master the art of creating unsettling, horror-leaning, experimental songs that still maintain a degree of accessibility. Then there is singer Chelsey Hice, vocally not too far away from Fever Ray’s Karin Dreijer-Andersson who adds weirdness and intensity. The entire EP “Losing Landscape”, out today on Bandcamp, is brilliant, but so far “Graveyard” is my favorite, because of the way it builds from a disturbing, heavy piece into something that almost resembles a pop song.
