Christian Donaghey, under the moniker Autumns, doesn't muck about. Hailing from Derry, Ireland, he's cultivated a singular aesthetic since he started releasing music a few years ago; industrially hard-edged, opaquely filthy, groaning with distortion, extrapolating as much influence from avant garde noise acts and post-punk as techno and EBM.
While sections of Donaghey's upcoming second album 'Shortly After Nothing' veer towards post punk, techno, dubstep - and even glimpses of ambient's more misanthropic side in the case of 'Slow Wet Heat' - 'Sometime Soon' is smoky broken techno, with manically darting synthlines cheered onwards by distorted barking vocals and immaculately clean percussion. For those of you looking for more shouting in your club music a lá Giant Swan, look no further. Check it out below.
'Shortly After Nothing' is out early May via Oliver Ho's label Death & Leisure.
