About

“Kontour is a British all-electronic project based in the South of England; a step backwards in electronics, with odd, eccentric footsteps. Primitive songs about government surveillance and mass paranoia recorded during the first nuclear war. Themes are reminiscent of Burroughs or Ballard wordplay, approaching people’s ideals of untruths and hidden reality. Having experimented with analogue effects and tape recorders on previous recordings, we continue with that approach. Recordings are constructed from the ground up with distorted rhythm tracks and sequences weaving in and out through ancient synth noise. Running over and under the music is a vocal style, using various methods to create the eerie sound of a storyteller feeding you the lines to some sordid hidden secret hidden by the powers that be. Subject matter can turn to the darker side with stories of conspiracy, fetish fantasy and abnormal emotions. Tracks like ‘Necromance’ and ‘Kennedy Syndrome’ revealed the development in music style since Kontour’s initial release. The conclusion of experimentation mixed with the uneasy vocals an engaging listen”.
