【thoughts】hex.sys / les fleurs du mal

East coast based witch-pop unit Hex.sys’ latest single “Les fleurs du mal” is a moody slice of something special, an enchanting lullaby wrapped in layers of synth and atmospheric emotion.  Hex.sys do a stellar job at managing to fuse the “often inaccessible to the casual listener” style of darkwave/witch house with catchy pop melodies and structure.

Heads up for an unexpected saxophone in the outro portion, it really adds depth to the sequence and gives an already defined composition additional edge.  Now we’ve got a bit of jazz in our witchy house pop!  Props where they’re due~

You can stream “Les fleurs du mal” on Apple Music and Spotify.
I’ve received word from frontman Zak Cy that Hex.sys will be releasing their “Cntrl.alt.del 2.22” EP later this month, so please look forward to it!
