Published Apr 15, 2016Last year, Toronto four-piece Programm delivered their Like the Sun EP, and now the group are ready to follow it up with their debut full-length offering A Torrid Marriage of Logic and Emotion.
The new album hears the band working with producer Alexandre Bonenfant (METZ, Crystal Castles) to solidify their wide-ranging influences into a cohesive sound. Drawing from Eastern music to drone to minimalist electronica, the band manage to craft a uniquely moody vibe.
Blurring the lines between electronica, industrial and shoegaze, the new songs are dark but melodic. Menacing pulsating rhythms are brightened with bursts of bright synths, while hazy and at times angelic vocals lift the listener out of ominous instrumentation across the eight-track set.
A Torrid Marriage of Logic and Emotion is officially out on April 22 through the Hand Recordings, but you can give it an early listen in the player below right now.
