Rare DM describes herself as a ‘dark designer of electronic sound’ and that’s a fair summation of her music, though it doesn’t really convey the sombre exquisiteness of Jade.
Ripples of darkwave form the bedrock of the track, stark arpeggios lending the circular rhythms a sense of movement and enhancing the soft melody carried by the vocals. With its shades of Oppenheimer Analysis and Martial Canterel, it manages to be both bracingly cold and warmly personal, reflecting the contrast between the music and the lyrics.
Jade is out now and can also be streamed on Soundcloud. You can catch up with Rare DM on her socials, including Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Her new album Vanta Black is out soon – you can pre-save it on Spotify.
