Manic - Single
We’ve only heard dribbles from Toronto-based electro duo Prince Innocence in the past couple years, with the occasional track being uploaded to Soundcloud. But Tavi Faustmann and Josh McIntyre have outdone themselves with their latest offering, new single “Manic”. With a minimalist approach to the arrangements and a gentle vocal delivery, it comes off as chilly and detached, almost to the point of being frigid.
"'Manic' is about the experience of hypomania and the emergence from a depressive episode," Josh and Talvi explained in an interview with The Fader. "It tries to convey the lush, cinematic lens through which someone in that state sees and interacts with the world. At the same time, there's a dark recognition of the universality and banality behind these moments. It's definitely one of our most sexually-charged songs and is in pretty huge contrast to 'I Don't Care,' which was an ode to apathy.”
Extremely effective - trip-hop pioneers Massive Attack would certainly approve. We hope to hear more from Prince Innocence soon.
