NEW TRACK: Outcasts of the Universe - "Empire Heavyweight (Sushi Edit)"
For an electro-pop duo known for their glistening pop hooks and boundary-escaping experiments, “Empire Heavyweight” finds Outcasts Of The Universe sitting comfortably at the witchy black-lit end of bedroom electronica. Shifting towards abstract blurs and distant loner atmospherics, the music stands out as a well-constructed pop song mined with subtle elements of cyborg spook. Dylan’s vocals resemble sweet nightmare—fluffy and lightweight, covered with hazy, ghosted effects. But it’s the contrast between the urgent digital beats and dreamy synths that gives the song its extra darkness and edge, glimmering as it is about to fade without notice.
