UNDER THE RADAR: Black Marble – “Iron Lung”

UNDER THE RADAR: Black Marble – “Iron Lung”.

The soothing bass, twinkling synths, and melancholy vocals are great and all, fuzzy and sentimental and ensconced in womb-like compression.

But it’s that echoing drum cascade, which the song runs over once a measure like a repeating bump in the road, that sets “Iron Lung” apart from your garden-variety New Order throwback — giving the song an irresistible undertow, and, appropriate to its title, a breathe-in, breathe-out sense of pulsing life.
