IAMX - Neurosymphony

Reads: 549 times


"Sometimes my heart gets so wild I want to rip it out," sings Chris Corner, heralding his return with unparalleled style. Though 'Fault Lines²' is set for release on August 30, 2024, we can already savor "Neurosymphony," the album's debut single. In this track, Corner revisits his hallmark blend of lyricism, poetics, and dynamism. The composition is based on complex, non-obvious structures, with surprising shifts that occur at completely unexpected moments. These elements pile up and layer like the most exquisite sonic lace, creating a quality that, as always with IAMX, strikes directly at the heart. The song is absolutely beautiful, with lyrics that capture the essence of complex emotions in a simple yet profound way:
"Now you understand
I got locked in a perfect neurosymphony
My own emotional wasteland."
I've always admired Corner's ability to articulate emotional states that are almost indescribable, yet he manages to do so effortlessly. The spectrum he builds—ranging from lyricism to wild intensity, and stunning dynamics with a versatile voice that he manipulates effortlessly, transitioning from singing to piercing screams—is nothing short of brilliant and overwhelming. Chris Corner holds an in blanco cheque in my heart, and I don't see that changing anytime soon. I eagerly await the album and the concerts!
