AUDIO: Stacian – “X2020”
Darkwave artist Stacian is a Milwaukee native but now resides in Nashville. She released a new EP recently on Death Decay Magic, consisting of three shadowy tracks encompassing leftfield techno, minimalist philosophy, and industrial punk textures. The third track is a reworking of the first by Black Light Smoke. It’s music that takes fear and weaponizes it as power, finding relevance in these times of political urgency. This is what the cold dungeon-dwellers dance to, for sure. We hope to here more from Stacian in the months to come.
