Compared to the likes of Crystal Castles, Purity Ring and Holy Other, Blonde Mossy represents a resurgance of the Witch House genre, coupling the occult with dark electronic music and heavily altered vocals and samples.
Last Rites is an album about a journey.
The album focuses around the protagonist’s journey through the woods, and the conflict and confrontation they find therein. The listener follows the path through the woods and what they might find there, until they reach their final destination. The album has a sound of forbidding darkness throughout, and the idea that in
that darkness something important might be found.
