Claus Zinger – I Went Down The Road Today

Posted on the 22 October 2014 by Ifm @ifmdotcom

Obscure Sound introduced me to Jerusalem’s Claus Zinger, one of the most stylistically original singer/songwriters I’ve heard lately. While there are many expressive and emotionally demanding songs to be found on his SoundCloud, “I Went Down The Road Today” stands out as an absolutely mind-blowing piece of music. Zinger sounds like his just about ready to fall apart; singing “why the tears are always falling? Even though there is no reason” over and over like if his life depended on it. All the while being backed by impeccably layered spine-chilling synth work rendered on-top of irregular, stop-and-go shaped drum play. “I Went Down The Road Today” manages to feel comforting and harrowing, in equal amounts. And remains nothing less than fascinating throughout.
