Our Few Words

Following his album ‘In Decay’ in 2012 and the EP ‘Silicon Tare’ in 2016, Com Truise makes a powerful return with his latest album titled ‘Iteration.’ The album’s title, with its mathematical connotations, directly alludes to the repetitive nature of electronic music. True to tradition, the Los Angeles-based musician has chosen to work solo, even taking on the task of designing the album cover himself, drawing on his experience as an artistic director.

Com Truise’s signature sound, which sets him apart in the Synthwave genre, is at the forefront of this album. His self-described ‘mid-fi synth-wave’ or ‘slow-motion funk’ style takes center stage. Seth Haley continues to deliver futuristic sounds influenced by the best of science fiction, both past and present. These sounds are woven into a tapestry of 80s synthesizers, accompanied by slow-motion percussive rhythms and heavy bass that rival the best hip-hop producers. Throughout the 12 tracks of the album, Com Truise weaves a captivating story, taking listeners on a digital journey filled with cutting-edge technology from another world. The composition work is sumptuous, with a plethora of sounds carefully crafted into highly sought-after melodies that create a grand sonic atmosphere, reminiscent of great science fiction films. The album also features intelligent breaks.

‘Iteration’ is a subtle, personal, and dark album that grows in admiration with each listen. Fans eagerly awaited this LP, and it was certainly worth the wait. Thank you, Com Truise, for this exceptional work.

Gold quote

Loyal to his retro futuristic mid-fi synthy sound, the spoonerism instigator is releasing his first full-length after six years. Galactic Melt earned Com Truise a very loyal following back in 2011, especially on the Internet. Although the two works aren’t too different from one another, Iteration feels much more vivid and catchy, like the soundtrack for a cult sci-fi movie.
