Black Marble – “It’s Immaterial”

Black Marble is an LA-based synth-wave project fronted by Chris Stweart, and It’s Immaterial is my first taste of his music. I didn’t know what to expect going into this album, but I do have to say I was very impressed with what I got. On this album, Stewart makes incredibly moody synth-wave, and you can tell he is influenced by artists like The Cure. The drum machines are minimal, the synths are shimmering, and there is an overall shadowy atmosphere. Definitely worth a listen for sure.
