With a lead synth line that sounds like Talking Heads's "This Must Be the Place" washed over with liquid graphite, the debut single from Brooklyn coldwave outfit Black Marble embeds truly lovely melodies in dark, weird slabs of sound. This mellow tune keeps the grit, but loses the desperation of some of Black Marble's angstier genre peers. The band will release their first album A Different Arrangement via Hardly Art on October 9. Stream "A Great Design" below.
