With their new album Dissolution Wave arriving at the end of this month, Cloakroom have followed up recent single “Lost Meaning” by unveiling a final teaser single called “Fear Of Being Fixed”.
That strange, unknowable fear hinted at by the title “Fear Of Being Fixed” is fully realised in the sonics of the song. A sludgey battle through tense guitars and electrifying atmospherics, it feels like a doomed journey deep into the treacherous waters of the self. Dissolution Wave has a loose concept of being written from the perspective of an asteroid miner, and the extent of the self-questioning and loneliness is made all the more tangible through the blasting and receding sonics of “Fear Of Being Fixed”. It feels simultaneously like floating in anti-gravity and being buffeted by waves of uncompromising angst.
