Dark synth album ‘Suzy Went Missing’ by Collins debuts on cassette
Don’t go in the house… unless it’s to get to a tape deck!
Limited to 150 cassettes split between pink or black shells, Spun Out Of Control presents the debut physical release of ‘Suzy Went Missing’ by synth artist ‘Collins’ (aka Gary Collins). An album of cinematic dark synth compositions that seamlessly drifts from sinister atmospherics to pulsating dance floor destroyers, that could perfectly soundtrack a film by Nicolas Winding Refn, this is sure to delight those seeking new music that constantly thrills and surprises.
Specially commissioned cover and inlay artwork by label regular Eric Adrian Lee inspired the choice of tape colours. Download card supplied with all retail copies.
Gary Collins on ‘Suzy Went Missing’:
“The vocal sample ‘I could hear them calling, the voices of the dead’, found on the opening track, set in motion the inspiration for this album. Could I process this monologue and make it sound like a voice from the ‘other side’? A missing daughter, sister, girlfriend calling out, or sending a message to loved ones still in the realm of the living?
Over a period of two years I wrote a collection of tracks. I tried to bring an aggressive and claustrophobic feel to the music, whilst using the ‘voice of the dead’ to bind the whole piece together.
With this album I wanted to continue my exploration of the dark side of human nature found on my previous releases: the fear of being along and the depths to which certain types of personality, certain types of people, can reach in order to avoid the feelings of alienation and loneliness.
Violent beings, lacking in empathy, flawed product of their nature and nature. Seemingly normal people who walk amongst us everyday, hidden beneath a veil of apparent humanity.”
