Petite Noir – Till We Ghosts

August 20, 2012

Petite Noir is a fitting name for South African producer and vocalist Yannick Iluga, in that his sound is so evocative of ethereally dark visuals, it can almost be described as cinematic. It’s not just the mix; it’s his voice — a drowning, almost maudlin croon that could be mistaken for a bad Matt Berninger impression…but we mean that in the absolute best of ways. The mix on “Till We Ghosts” serves as a haunted house that Iluga is meant to explore, and the result is a track that is overflowing with with nostalgia for a time that never existed and desperation for relief.
