about

Tokyo netscape nightingale Sapphire Slows’ new album expands on the tone-bank nocturnes of 2011’s True Breath EP with headier, haunted highs and eerier, elegant depths. Recorded and mixed across 2012, and inspired by everything from St. Etienne’s plasticine euro-house, J-Pop memories, Blue Bell Knoll, and the saddest Section 25 remixes, Allegoria swirls and spirals through ten textural electronic melancholias composed in and for solitude. The record grows more reflective and insular as it proceeds, ebbing from the Casio ghost-dub (“Dry Fruits," “Third Party”) to spider-web sleepwalker techno (“Corekill,” “Fade Out") before finally dissolving into weightless 4 AM Kompakt abstractions (“Break Control,” “Meteor”) A delicate fusion of emotive and exploratory impulses, coaxed from fiber optic essence and urban infinity. In her words: “Darkness no one can enter; only listening to this album lets you into my real world.”
