French synth solo project Hørd, helmed by musician and producer Sebastien Carl, debuts a chilling new song, called “Ice”. While the music flirts with a darkwave aesthetic, it also incorporates EBM, shoegaze, and techno elements. Synth pads, ghostly reverbs, and echoing lyrics meld together in a haunting soundscape with the track, hypnotizing listeners with spacey synths and rounded kicks.
The song mixed and mastered by famed sound engineer Maurizio Baggio (The Soft Moon, Boy Harsher), is rife with a nebulous atmosphere that is both captivating and immersive, infused with urgent arpeggios and trance, sprinkled with Italo seasoning over groovy acid house beats.

Since starting the project in 2014, Sebastien Carl has made a name for himself playing live across Europe, and collaborating with Hante., Winter Severity Index, and Radical G; as well as remixing goth legends Clan Of Xymox.
