New Noise Magazine is making this hump day a little more exotic thanks to the premiere of “SUNKEN” by duo Scratch Massive. While utilizing samples and synthesizers in the music, there’s a chilling atmosphere for “SUNKEN” that showcases the brilliance of Scratch Massive. Vocalist Maud Geffray invokes a lot of hypnotic lust with the vocal performance, with feature Leonie Pernet adding an ethereal but raw presence to the song. Accompanying the premiere is a visually stunning music video (shot by other half of the group Sebastien Chenut), with a lot of vibrant imagery adding a color palette of Scratch Massive.
“SUNKEN” is derived from ‘Sunken City’ in San Pedro, CA–where there was the resort devastation in 1929. Early in the 20th century, a natural landslide caused several beachside homes in the Pt. Fermin area of San Pedro, CA, to slide into the ocean. The site was dubbed ‘Sunken City.’ Nowadays the site has become a place for street art, video creations, etc.—and is naturally where the “SUNKEN” music video was shot. Sunken City, the band’s next full length, will be released in March of 2018.
