Matter – Mrk

Matter – Mrk

The band Matter is something quite specific to our environment, especially considering their lyrics, pretty trashy aesthetics and random video scenes that became even quirkier on their second album Mrk. Apart from the three members, Matter consists of visual art, which we can see in their videos, musical art and word art, which extends beyond their lyrics. The latter conveys unconventionality, dissonance, and ugliness, crucial to any artistic resistance.
It is possible that due to the great density of words, the sound on Mrk gets thinner and more junkyard-ish. High-pitched, highly synthetic lines and various cheap vocal manipulations are drifting towards atmospheric drones. The meta-conceptual level, the deeper penetration into the sonic trashiness, and the thematic penetration into the intimacy are distinctive traits of their debut album and at the same time identify this one.
