Xymox AKA Clan Of Xymox - A Day 12"

Xymox or Clan Of Xymox, whichever you prefer, have really used their arpeggiator to their advantage to produce fantastic danceable tracks. They have mastered the art of synthesizer music without sounding too sell-out. As a matter of fact they have kept their reputation of being dark and sub-cultured from the time they started to the present. What do you expect, they belong to this elite group of 4AD artists, Cocteau Twins, Bauhaus, Frazier Chorus, Xmal Deutschland, Pixies, Pale Saints, Lush, Modern English and the list goes on. For me, this 12" is an A side on both sides because both songs, A Day and Stranger, are equally phenomenal. One thing I also admire about this single is its unique sleeve artwork created by 23 Envelope, a 4AD resident.
