It’s easy to get lost in the soulful and nuanced gut-punch of front-woman Al Spx’s voice as her songs’ vibrant textures and brooding atmospheres tint her ruminant lyricism and emotionally resonant music. Self described as ‘doom soul’, Cold Specks tracks are rife with the vulnerability of experience viscerally depicted and carefully alluded to. With her new record Neuroplasticity Spx varies her tonality and inspired songs with trip-hop inspired drumming and abrupt-yet-artful tempo shifts.
