Christ Figures/New Puritan
Sigha is back with a booming, atmospheric achievement. The resounding intensity of "Christ Figures" is layered with emotive and staccato melodic elements. At times distant, and then rising to the forefront of the soundscape; in their more muted moments these elements only hint at the form of a melody, their restraint heightening the track's sense of melancholic romanticism. "New Puritan" comes from Living With Ghosts (HF 009CD/LP, 2012). Offering a similar hypnotism, there's an untiring interaction between mid-range and bass that demands transfixion from the offset and retains it until the end.
