Aeneas’ “Existential Crisis” creeps up on you like the experience of the title often does. A background drone blossoms into a melodramatic soundscape punctuated by moments of emotional oasis from an intense wave of peak feeling. The processed, warped vocal sample comes in like a reminder of your failings while the processed vocals, like your conscious mind, tries to maintain some semblance of your humanity while drums pound out a dynamic rhythm and a simple guitar rhythm traces the through line that is your life line through the trauma as a glimmer of the familiar and steady. Fans of Poppy and Vowws will appreciate the genre bending and synthesis of industrial rock and experimental darkwave dance music.
