Voltage Black Releases Newest EP “We, The Obsolete”

London based digital music artists Voltage Black have released their newest EP, “We, the Obsolete.” The EP is a comprehensive treatment of their first single from their debut album, which is due out in September. The EP contains three iterations of “We, the Obsolete,” beginning with the official, standard release of the single, and followed by the “Ph03nix Remix” and “Singularity Edit.” These versions are each different enough to stand alone as an entirely individual song, and the EP comprises approximately 14 minutes of continual listening time as a result. The music fan would be mistaken to imagine that listening to this Voltage Black EP from start to finish would be like hearing a track on repeat. This is entirely not the case.

Voltage Black is, at its heart, studio musician and composer Ewan Fisher, who when performing live is joined by percussionist James Milton. The tone and general experience of Voltage Black is, in their own words, “unified by an aesthetic of layered psychedelic experimentalism.” To hear the record is to understand their aim in this. The music comes in and out like breeze, and rhythms are alive more than simply background. Fisher's choice of instrumentation is eclectic, surprising, and genuinely original, rather than simply an attempt at being unique or unorthodox.

They name as inspirations an unlikely grab bag of names and muses. Listing their main influences, Voltage Black writes, “Experimentation, wonky old tape sounds, Warp Records artists, Bjork, '90s and '00s post rock, Arthur Russell, Liars….” If this list provides only a vague idea of what music might be produced using these inspirations as a template, it is perhaps because “We, the Obsolete” is the furthest thing from derivative. They throw everything that sounds good into the mix, and don't spend any time trimming out the excess.

“Maximalism is a force for good,” says Voltage Black.

“We, the Obsolete” is available online everywhere beginning February 25, 2013.
