Chikiss uses the experience of losing her voice as “a deep subtext” to New Season. With or without knowledge of her episode, the “atmosphere of music” envelops the listener in a fog of melancholy and loneliness, with solitary keyboard riffs, processed vocals, and sparse electric percussion exposing a rich, emotional listen.

Chikiss’s music is dream pop turned inside out, just as Filthy Hun are inverting space rock and Swanox are pouring acid down Americana’s gullet.
