Warrior

Ahead of their debut US live shows at SXSW hotly tipped Belgian electronica trio VUURWERK return with their first proper release for Lo Recordings, the ‘Warrior’ EP, featuring guest vocals from Sylvie Kreusch, lead singer of Soldier’s Heart.

Kicking things off with ‘Mirrors’, an all to short but oh so sweet rush of euphoric sighs, trance like synths and half-time beats that builds and builds before breaking into ‘Warrior’ itself, where Sylvie’s plaintive vocals find a perfect home amongst VUURWERK’s fractured electronics and bass heavy rhythms. Her world-weary yet defiant chant ‘I used to be a warrior’, bursting like a ray of sunlight through a dark and stormy cloud.

Finally the EP ends with ‘Lux’, six tense minutes of industrial noises, acidic squelches and off-kilter percussion, the soundtrack to some hellish automated factory working through the night to some infernal plan.

As well as playing SXSW VUURWERK will play live at the David Lynch designed Silencio club in Paris on March 3rd. At this special event the band will premiere a new video for ‘Warrior’ that they have been working on in collaboration with up and coming Belgian fashion designers STUDIO KRJST before playing live with a guest appearance from Sylvie Kreusch.
