Gods of Music reviews "Synners"

Gods of Music

Dead Poets Society

“Synners” from the album DEPROGRAMMING

by Clint Gaige

This is a haunting song. William Gibson would be proud, this song would fit nicely in any of this tech-novels. I can easily imagine this song fitting into the background of his work, maybe a favorite of a Neuromancer. You can’t pigeon hole this song and declare it a genre, it just isn’t that simple.

The song opens with a haunting vocal that immediately pulled me in. Then the music starts demanding my continued attention, or shall I say, “change for the machine.” The music flows and creates a world in which anything is possible, a world where what you see is just an illusion.

This cut is an outstanding piece of creating. I can’t imagine anything removed from the whole, I can’t imagine moving anything. Even the faults I could hear felt “in place.”

This is a strong song, I am curious to see whether the album is as strong as the single. This is an album I am going to try to get my hands on soon. It’s an aural journey right into the worlds of William Gibson (Neuromancer), William Burroughs (Nova Express), Pat Cadigan (Synners), and Philip K. Dick (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?).

I have to recommend this on pure aesthetic!
