IGLOOGHOST Releases First Single From New Album ‘NEŌ WAX BLOOM’

Written by Jack Andrew Cribb

The latest tune from the Irish beat-maker Iglooghost has been released, and it’s a wondrously messy composition, but in the best of ways.

The track, Bug Thief, comes as the first single from Iglooghost’s (real name Seamus Malliagh) newest album, NEŌ WAX BLOOM, which is set to be released in September via Flying Lotus’ label, Brainfeeder.

Iglooghost wrote in a recent Facebook post: ‘MY FIRST ALBUM ‘NEŌ WAX BLOOM’ IS DROPPING IN SEPTEMBER ON BRAINFEEDER. ABSOLUTELY ECSTATIC TO FINALLY BE ABLE TO SPILL THE BEANS ABOUT THIS. BEEN WORKING FOR OVER A YEAR, EVERY DAY ON THIS THING. A LOT OF BLOOD & SWEAT & TEARS WENT INTO THIS, BUT I COULDN’T BE HAPPIER WITH IT.’

‘PLS SHOW ALL UR FRIENDS & GRANDPARENTS ETC. LET’S TRY & BLAST THIS INTO AS MANY EARS AS POSSIBLE! A LOT MORE FUN IGLOO STUFF IS GONNA BE DROPPING THROUGHOUT THE MONTH, SO STAY UP TO DATE ON ALL THE SOCIALS & SHIT. U KNOW THE DRILL. LOVE YA.’

Bug Thief itself is a delightfully complex amalgamation of chiptune, dance, and dub, amongst other things. It races along rapid percussive cascades and synth progressions which dance around like fireflies on acid. It’s chaotic and frantic, seemingly never losing pace, but also demonstrates Malliagh’s ability to craft an incredibly intricate track that never seems too grandiose or disparate, as all of the threads of this song come together to create a wonderfully upbeat maelstrom of sound.
