Music: Andy Stott – It Should Be Us

Manchester-based electronic music musician Andy Stott has come through with a brand new project titled It Should Be Us. I’ve been a fan of his dark, visceral electronic compositions for years, and this new project sees him continue that dark, hypnotic sound, making it moody, emotive and engaging.

The album starts off with “Dismantle,” a dark and unsettling track with electronic synths that complements subtle vocal samples and a moody, almost ethereal tone throughout this record. The synths and beat on tracks like “Promises,” “It Should Be Us,” “Take” and “Ballroom” feature infectious synths and beats that are hard-hitting and moody, but offer melody and lighter moments as well. The subtle synths that appear throughout the heavy “Take” are an example of this – a somewhat angelic, ethereal sound that dominates the dark and almost industrial soundscape. There are plenty of moments like this throughout the album, and Andy is really able to immerse me in his world of dark, cutting-edge electronic music, really bringing a dark, hard-hitting sound that perfectly represents the darker side of UK electronic music. It’s a truly fantastic project.
