Touch Sensitive / 2018 In Review

In 2018, Belfast-based Touch Sensitive admirably championed the musical talent of their hometown. Black Bones took Group Zero`s Industrial Pursuit dancing. Producing an irresistible ALFOS-worthy chugger. Documenta delivered a reading of the legend of Margorie McCall, The Lady With The Ring. A Post-Rock wall of sound, by turns epic Shoegaze, and don’t-turn-out-the-light Gothic. David Holmes` soundtrack to Steven Soderbergh`s (pre-Bandersnatch) interactive whodunit, Mosaic, homaged both Badalamenti and Morricone. Ai Messiah scored the approaching Singularity, with serene, sometimes unsettling, ambience.
