Stream a New Song from Ben Frost
- Words: Patric Fallon
Earlier this month, Reykjavík-based Australian noisenik Ben Frost—who we also just discovered will contribute to Unsound Festival's unusual perfume-centric art installation—announced the impending release of his A U R O R A LP via Mute, sharing all of its details and an intriguing teaser film in the process. And he adds to that excitement today with the unveiling of a full track from the record, the icy and punishing "Venter." The Brian Eno collaborator and Bedroom Community co-owner is in fine form on his latest composition, as he harnesses a vast array of atmospheric textures and bespoke synth and drum sounds to realize a slow-boiling churn of intense, ghostly emotion. "Venter" can be streamed in full below, before Frost's A U R O R A album arrives on May 27.
