‘Angel of Annihilation’ by Indigo Maya is an ethereal Electropop/Industrial Metal song depicting the day-to-day disorientation that comes with chronic pain, and the constant fluctuation between haziness in waking life and the raw carnage of nightmares. By jumping between dreamy verses with erratic, glitchy drums and sharp, chaotic choruses driven by layers of harsh synths and thrasher guitars Indigo successfully depicts the duality of her daytime and night time. Love those choruses! Describing her sound as Apocalypse Pop the influence of bands like Sleigh Bells can be clearly heard. Indigo says of this song:
The angel of annihilation is both Indigo’s alter ego and her illness made manifest, a reckless warlord inspired by sumerian mythology and demonology.
Here’s to Apocalypse pop.
