On October 20, new-yorked based vocalist Sharon Shy and musician Toppy aka R. Missing will release their debut mini-album “Unsummering” on Talitres.
“Unsummering”, the first release under their new moniker R. Missing, expands on The Ropes’ previous palette of Morrissey tinged lyrics and darkwave. It manages to be even more isolated lyrically than their famously nihilistic previous work, fully embracing complete detachment. Musically, fraught guitar and synth textures paint an image of an unstable world, held together only by tightly quantized electronic drum beats.
“Unsummering” available for pre-order (White Vinyl, Ltd Edition / Vinyl / CD / Digital) from the Talitres webstore.
“Mysterious darkwave entity R. Missing is making a case for shadowy alternative music that is infused with hazily deadpan female vocals, gleaming electronics, crisp beats, and noir synthesizer diffusion.”
