You may or may not have heard of unsigned, industrial act Corvax. Based in London, but hailing from Wales, David Marvelly is the man behind Corvax and his second EP release, Talk To The Man.
With four tracks, we step off with “Pills” which feel a bit like listening to early Trent Reznor, when he was young and angst ridden. This is clanking industrial with twinkling wisps of synthesisers. Mavelly will quietly tell you he doesn’t want to feel anything any more, then threaten you wanting to take the pills.
Title track, “Talk To The Man” is far more smooth and slicker. This is also the single with its groovy electric guitar and obviously influenced by Mike Patton. Over all has a very oppressive and claustrophobic feel.
“Good” makes me think Einstürzende Neubauten with the low dark vocals and percussion lead instrumentation that wanders into different styles and back again.
Last track is a fifty-one second vignette called “Failure“, featuring the lovely vocals of Maella, accompanied by acoustic guitar and bursts of wind like electric noise.
This isn’t the longest of EPs but makes up for it in experimentation, leading to some pretty cool sounds and following in the footsteps of some rather big names. Go check out, up and coming artist, Corvax with his Talk To The Man.
