Conjure One & Jaren (Rhys Fulber of Frontline Assembly/Delirium) releases “Animals”
For a production as uniquely enthralling as “Animals,” Rhys has sought out an equally individual vocal & lyrical style for it. Continuing a history of collaborating with fellow Canadian denizens (which famously began with Sarah McLachlan on “Silence”), it’s brought him to Jaren’s door.Unsurprisingly, the combination of his auteur-like sensibilities and a singer who – like Fulber – only writes when she has something significant to say – has created a lightning strike of a track. For his part, Rhys has created one of his most floor-flooring C.O. productions to date, setting its somber, ethereally signaling bleeps off against urgent breakbeat surge and brilliantly charged synths.
Catching its tonal drift, Jaren’s verses pick up on the nuance bound into its opening elements, in turn allowing full reign to her extraordinary range. Her song – rich in metaphor-peaks with a chorus that implicitly leaves the titular creatures’ meaning, but engagingly open.
