    NEW WEATHER
    Sean Curley, Tomory Dodge, Amber Rossino
    Album title: No Future
    Release Date: June 6, 2017 on Happy Accidents Records
    Four years after their sleekly propulsive self-titled debut album, Seattle trio New
    Weather return with a three-track EP that reflects the darker times in which we find
    ourselves. Whereas New Weather exuded a tempered brand of optimism with its
    ascending chord progressions and radiant synth tones reminiscent of Zuckerzeit-era
    Cluster or Stereolab at their most gloriously motorik-lovin' (even the ominous “Heat
    Death” possesses flickers of hope), No Future is shot through with a gnawing sense of
    imminent doom. But even as it portends trouble, the record can't help sounding like one
    of the sexiest terminal rocket rides you're ever likely to take.
    The opening track, “No Future,” posits Giorgio Moroder and Tangerine Dream in
    a cosmic-disco scenario that's as sensual as it is chilling. Rarely has blunt lyrical
    nihilism—consisting of Amber Rossino's Arctic exhalations of the title—existed in such
    ultra-vivid textural lavishness. On “Complex,” a Seefeel-like array of Rossino's layered
    vocals form a pristine halo over a mesmerizing synth pulsation that tolls with doomsday
    portent while a rumbling bass foundation reinforces the track's ominous aura.
    Perversely, there's a faint hint of Lipps Inc.'s debauched 1979 hit “Funkytown” in the
    main melody. The EP closes with a majestic flourish with “Abstract Organ.” Here New
    Weather mute and slow what could be the uplifting motif of a '90s rave anthem to evoke
    a much more sociopolitically tense time. A gradually evolving tune blossoms into a
    heart-wrenching meditation worthy of French synth master Zed/Bernard Szajner's
    Visions Of Dune album. It's the soundtrack to witnessing a civilization crumble in slow
    motion.
    On No Future. New Weather have distilled disco and old-school techno's most
    auspicious elements into an enchanting aural elixir that, paradoxically, posits brilliant
    times in tomorrow's haunted discotheques—and right now in your headphones.
