Direct Current – House Canary | Indie Electronic

House Canary was released in March of this year in Direct Current’s Horse Stuff 2(020) album. In it, he sings about Diamond Tiara and the values of the bourgeoisie enforced upon her by her parents. However, it also speaks of oppression and freedom and how the former can disguise as the latter as well as the resentment borne by a part of the youth toward the generations that precede it. Sung with substantial amounts of vocal effects (as with most of Direct Currents’s songs featuring vocals), powerful verses go with an instrumental equally as gratifying. Synths (some arpeggiated, some being pads and some in between) play lovely melodies, and quite memorable too. Do not forget to check out his DustCars project.
