Brighton, UK label Phantom Limb today announced the launch of a new imprint to be known, simply, as Spirituals. The inaugural release is due next month from Pram of Dogs, a hereto rather mysterious synth composer whose love of cult cinema and obscure film scores set him on the road to creating Matter-Anti, a soundtrack to the moving picture in his mind.
The first tantalising glimpse of Pram of Dogs’ imaginary world comes in the shape of “Teeth” and its glitchy accompanying video. Part Rear Window, part Lynchian time-loop nightmare, it focuses on the numerous inhabitants of an apartment block as they live and re-live a matter of seconds one night. The accompanying music, initially shimmering prettily before a surge of unnerving bass builds beneath, complements perfectly the strange sense of dread that builds as the voyeur darts back and forth fly-like outside the windows, seemingly frustrated by – or perhaps responsible for – a rumple in the fabric of time itself.
Matter-Anti will be released on 18 September. Watch the video for “Teeth” below:
