Cold Specks: “Absisto”
Following 2012′s I Predict A Graceful Expulsion, singer/songwriter Cold Specks is back with new music. “Absisto” is the first single from her upcoming sophomore album, Neuroplasticity, and if this track is anything to go by, we’re in for a surprise. Trading in her delicate coffee shop songs for a brash soundscape of electric guitars and drums, “Absisto” shows off a brand new side of Cold Specks. But her bluesy southern-soul vocals remain and imbue the track with a warm sense of passion. Despite its title (“Absisto” is the Latin word for “depart”), Cold Specks sounds so natural in this different style that it feels less like a departure and more like a natural step forward for the singer/songwriter.
Neuroplasticity is due out at the end of August via Mute Records.
