[Premiere] Rookley – Obsidian

Jul 10 2020

Brooklyn based electronica artist Rookley releases his new single “Obsidian” today via Berlin label AIMEND, the slow-moving, brooding and eerie sounding track is a nod to fellow artists such as Burial and Machinedrum. The single deals with Rookleys experiences during the recent COVID-19 quarantine focusing on the theme of isolation and loneliness.

“Get used to talking with your ghosts and your memories and the pain will slide away leaving you in peace. At least that’s what happens to me. Isolation is powerful: you just need to choose which way you wanna go.”
