Get to Know: Black Marble

How about some chill electronic beats to match the season? Black Marble is Ty Kube and Chris Stewart, a coldwave duo from Brooklyn that gives us icy, minimalist beats and detached baritone vocals. They are packaged in Weight Against The Door, a five-track EP out on Seattle's Hardly Art label.

"Pretender" features an insistent beat and effectively builds tension to the end. Here is is the backdrop to scenes from and old movie that fittingly seems to have its own ominous currents.
