In the vein of Depeche Mode, Bauhaus and ‘80s darkwave, Black Marble is another project riding this latest surge of synth-driven sad electronic music. The vocals sound a little bit like SA-born Neon Indian and the music lands somewhere between the echoey drum hits of Com Truise and guitar riffing of The Cure. A staple of the current New York darkwave scene (until his recent move to California) Chris Stewart started his project in 2012 and though he’s only released two records since then (the latest, 2016’s It’s Immaterial), Black Marble remains at the helm of the newly revived dark electronica scene.
