Adhere to Form - Departed - New LP
In the ever-changing waves of electronic music, a new amalgamation is resonating in the construct of Adhere to Form, the Portland-based solo endeavor of Robert Eagleson and his debut LP, Departed. Eagleson, a founding member of the beloved Northwest darkwave troupe, Vice Device, has spent the last two years theorizing and composing songs that extend perpendicularly to that of his more notable affiliation. In Adhere to Form, he amps up the theatrics, calling to mind the syncopated churns of European forebearers D.A.F, leather-clad industrial occupants of 80’s Berlin, and the dystopian distress of early synth experimenters John Foxx, Cabaret Voltaire and The Normal. It’s an effort hinged just as much on elemental smearing as it is booted-up BPM.
