Portland artist and producer Slighter (Colin C.) has had a busy year. Cause and Effect Expanded was released in October 2018 (https://www.qromag.com/reviews/album_reviews/slighter-cause-and-effect-ep/) (https://www.qromag.com/features/what-to-shop-for-2018/) and just in time for Valentine’s days is a heavy love song about… murder… that you can dance to. In what sounds like an effortless collaboration with Boston Industrial/EDM artist MOЯIS BLAK,“The Hunt”, C’s vocals croon the loss of control and questions morality to Blak’s electric driving beats. I cannot express enough how ridiculously dancey this is. The single is very dark, lyrically tense and the production level is what you expect with a Slighter release. “The Hunt” is the lead single off of Slighter’s upcoming album Automata, and is currently available at his bandcamp at a name your own price along with “The Hunt – Industrial Bass Edit”. The single’s styling by makeup artist A.J. Modely is similarly dark and suits the mood. Grab it while you can and with this intro to Slighter’s new material we are keeping an eye on what’s next.
