Since his emergence on the scene in 2011, Imploded View (AKA Jerome McCormick) has proven to be a reliable resource of exciting, experimental and interesting electronic music.
McCormick too, has been one of Ireland’s most prolific producers, if somewhat overlooked or under-appreciated (call it what you will), with two albums, Picnics with Pylons (2012) & Anomaly Domine (2013) , a couple of EPs and a scattering of singles. All that said, his new single ‘Withering Lights’ is one of his finest moments to date. It’s a tad different to what he’s done before, yet still quite similar too, especially McCormick’s preference for analogue synths and tape machines. ‘Withering Lights’ is gentle, elegant and immersive. It sprightly pops and bubbles through a world lacking cares or worries, arrived at along a light and airy, hypnotic groove. One of his most outstanding works so far. Marvelous.
