KUČKA continues to build on her brand of brooding and dark electronic soundscapes with her second single of the year in ‘Ascension’, a track that is filled with a vast array of textures that meld into the haunting vocals with ease.
What is clear within ‘Ascension’ is the balance maintained in production between the atmospheric pads injecting a thick layer of fog into the backdrop, and the quirky industrialised percussion that provides a quirkiness into the soundscape without overpowering the mix. With this partnership set in stone throughout the duration, this sense of minimalism in the instrumentation allows for the haunting and delicate vocals of KUČKA to mesmerise all that are in their path.
“’Ascension’ is about the continual growth that we are all undertaking at every stage of our life. We’re constantly faced with new challenges whether we realize it or not and it’s important that we don’t let our fears get in the way of our enjoyment of the process.” – KUČKA
