From the depths of great trauma, delicious art can be derived — such is the music of Corlyx. The band made up of Italian songwriter Brandon and American singer Caitlin, met in Los Angeles and repatriated to iconic Italy to birth their band’s namesake she derived from a teenage dream. Thusly born of traumatic childhoods, they joined forces in mutually-creative admiration of the musical stylings of bands such as Nine Inch Nails, Garbage, Joy Division, and My Life With The Thrill Kill Cult (refs to Spotify and the aptly titled SonicNews.blog).
The song uses both pitch and volume modulations of the guitar, bass, and synth lines dizzyingly, tightly-sinuously interwoven to create a three-dimensional audio experience of the occult. Erasure similarly drew chains in our imaginations by weaving multiple layered synth-lines in their hit single Chains of Love, but instead of happy major keys, Corlyx brandishes minor keys deftly and with apparent infectious abandon.
It’s insanely catchy. Especially, after only a few listens.
To further sweeten the deal, they then added a perfectly-timed undulating siren, a slap-strummed Spanish-Arabesque guitar, a muddy-thick waddling bassline, and their vocal-mesh, fuzzy-like, almost furry sounding…
The mix is as brilliant as it is beguiling.
Together Apart, the album featuring this gem is chock-full of these ear-worm-candies to devour… yum, cherry.

Firѕt off I would like to say excellent blog!
I had a quick question thаt I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
I was curious to find out how yօu center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting mү
thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in wrіting but it just seems
like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usualⅼy lost simply
just trying to figure out how to begin. Any
ѕuggestions or tips? Appгeciate it!
Thank you for the kind words and apologies for your comment being caught erroneously as spam. I revisit the object of my essay over and over until I get a sliver of an idea, then I write that down, no matter how stupid, or misspelled, or badly phrased, and then try to expound on that. Then, if I can’t think of anything else to go forward with yet, I’ll polish that first turd up, lol. The object being to give my subconscious more time to mull over the subject and bring more ideas to the forefront of my mind. I try to do this ‘mulling’ process using whatever research I’ve collected and let my subconscious stew on it for a few days prior to writing as well. My subconscious writes a lot better than my conscious does. Finally, if you look at my early writing compared to my later writing you can see it does get easier/better with time. Hope that helps! 😊💀
