Over the last decade, Los Angeles-based Black Marble has specialized in cold, dark, and somewhat gothic synth-pop. For their fourth album Fast Idol, visionary Chris Stewart has turned his sights on the introspective, tempering wistful lyrics with detached melodies that could easily fool you as coming from the 80s New Wave scene. “Try” captured our fancy. a catchy dance beat that recalls the easy categorization with Depeche Mode and New Order and Orchestral Manoeuvres In the Dark, yet sounds wholly original. Furthermore, “Try” could have easily made the soundtrack of any number of 80s teen movies–a plus in our book.
