New Single: The Agenda by The Shimmer Effect

We just dropped our first single ‘The Agenda‘ from our upcoming 2015 debut release with Big Wave Records. This track is full of suspense & energy; electronic with some glitchy and industrial-ish undertones.. we think. She was also a monster to mix and drove us up the walls at times, but we pushed through and are really happy and excited to share our new creation with you. This is also the first time in our 5 year existence that we`ve layed down vocals from both of us – that for us as a unit is in itself  a big milestone and sign of growth. We hope you enjoy listening and watching as much as we did creating it! Let us know, share the love, make a comment.. it`s always appreciated and keeps us motivated.

NEW RELEASE: Gemini Sun by Salook


released 28 May 2014

Gemini Sun is a collection of uniquely Salook-styled experimental tracks. The album is full of intense atmospheres which you may find strangely peaceful at times. The layering and textures infuscated with wild
percussions and glitch breaks accompany the listener to the outer
limits…spooky in the best sense.

“I measured the skies, now the shadows I measure
Skybound was the mind, earthbound the body rests”
