Earlier this month, the Zurich, Switzerland drone musician, Debutante released a split with fellow noise-maker, Feral. Debutante describes the music on the split as “Songs about hating your body and dysphoria”. Today, we are sharing Debutante’s contribution and closing track “No Mirrors”. The track is a slow burning drone that opens with ethereal acoustic guitar that recalls Giles Corey. The track builds from there adding more ambience, sporadic blasts of noise, and electronic flourishes that eventually cultivate into the tracks heavy dirge of a closing stretch.
Lyrically, Debutante makes good on the split’s description. With moaned and damaged vocals, Debutante paints and incredibly honest portrayal of androgyny. Throughout the track, Debutante wails key lyrics like: “I want to look more feminine, but my hairline’s receding” and “I want to put on makeup without feeling so damn vulnerable”. Listen to the track below and stream the whole split via bandcamp.
