FUTURE NOISE – 18+January 7, 2015
For much of its four-year life span the musical project dubbed 18+ was shrouded in mystery; a musical concept formed with no human identity and treated as an online art form. However, this approach was not your regular “mystery producer” hype tactic. Instead, the theory behind 18+ largely commented on our ever evolving disconnect between the online and offline worlds.
It wasn’t until late 2013 until the clues unraveled and the producer duo Samia Mirza and Justin Swinburne emerged with their first official album, Trust. Serving up explicitly electronic layers beneath obscured, dual force harmonies, it’s safe to say that 18+ is very real indeed. Just be careful when you Google it.
