Who is ready for some hot debauchery?! We are, you are, and we knew that so that is why we dug deep in our list of new music this week to bring you some found gold. This week we have agender queer synth pop artist The Venus In Scorpio with ‘Blissed‘ – A triumph over the struggles of learning to love yourself.
“Once you learn to love yourself enough to stop focusing only on yourself you’re able to come together with other people and celebrate under the same sun, experiencing each other’s joy and being a part of the universal recovery and evolution of humanity.”
Maxim Faster, known musically as The Venus in Scorpio, is an electronic producer and songwriter based in Los Angeles, California. Roaming ambiguously across the spheres of 70s Glam Rock, 80s Goth and New Wave, and everything 2000 and beyond, The Venus in Scorpio’s unique sound captures a sprawling sonic essence that is strikingly familiar, while curiously bypassing theconventions of genre.
The genderless, and self-described “mysterious and moody They next door” first gained exposure after BuzzFeed highlighted their experience selling underwear online to secret admirers around the world. Their unapologetic message of self-empowerment, liberation, and sex-positivity attracted a following of fascinated bystanders, who were surprised and eager to listen when a music project was debuted.
The Venus in Scorpio’s second EP, I’ll Never See Him Again, is a dark synth pop trip through more intimate areas of Faster’s life, casting a glimmering pop sheen on their bleak personal experiences in emotional recovery and lost love. Their second single “Daddi Decides” was mentioned in Paper Magazine’s Bop’s Only top 10 for its “shiny ’80s synthpop (complete with a magnificently sticky chorus) [that] casts a heavenly light through its narrator’s shadows”, with Flaunt Magazine hosting the video premiere. The Venus in Scorpio have taken their eccentric and enigmatic live shows to iconic Los Angeles venues such as the Troubadour, Gold-Diggers, TheSatellite and the Hi Hat. Faster is currently producing their third EP, This Place Is Killing Me, with plans to relocate to Berlin in 2020.
