Darkwave synth maestro Buzz Kull—the music project of Sydney-based producer Marc Dwyer made an impressive showing at Wave Gotik Treffen this past May, causing the venue to exceed capacity during a usually desolate time slot. His one man show invariably upstaged many of the headliners to follow, with his infectious beat driven music that traverses the realms between EBM, darkwave and goth sounds with ease.
Quickly following Dwyer’s kinetic performance that sold out all the merchandise he had brought on tour, the synth auteur quickly unveiled the audio for the new track “Avoiding the Light”, an infectiously retro groove of icy minimal synth whose melody is augmented by the nuanced flourishes that only someone as skilled as Marc Dwyer could create.
The song was written after a near-death experience explains Dwyer:
“It came together pretty much immediately”, he continues, “I was feeling affected and needed to confront my emotions’.

“Avoiding The Light” is the first single from Dwyer’s forthcoming LP, New Kind Of Cross. A record which follows the 2017’s critically acclaimed Chroma LP. The project will be on tour starting this November, see tour poster at the bottom of the page.
New Kind of Cross is set for release November 16th through various labels internationally:
