Void Moments is Chicago trio FACS (ex-Disappears) third album. FACS have evolved very quickly in the span of their three year existence. Void Moments, their latest offering is a‑dark and claustrophobic album, with rivulets of seismic beauty peeking through the din. Formed in the wake of the dissolution of Disappears, guitarist Brian Case and drummer Noah Leger's project is the logical continuation of the trails blazed in their former outfit. Since their 2017 debut 'Negative Houses', the band have reworked, retooled and reshaped their sound, and with the addition of bassist Alianna Kalaba on 2018's 'Lifelike', their evolution has coalesced into something distinct. Gone is the bone-rattling minimalism of 'Negative Houses'. Void Moments offers an abstraction of the melodic elements that crept into 'Lifelike' and contorts them toward a new horizon. Where 'Lifelike' rang with a metallic, near-industrial racket, Void Moments cloaks their music behind a black velvet curtain of sonance.
'Boy' kicks off the album with a lurch of vocals and Case's sinewy guitar-line guiding a stoic march. By the time Kalaba drops in with the bass, the track morphs into a milky swirl, leading into the chiming swirl of 'Teenage Hive’s buzzing churn. 'Casual Indifference' expertly fuses the band's rhythmic pulse with a sombre dissolve of guitars, vocals and backwards-masked drums. 'Version' closes out side one with lush surges of Case's shoegaze'd guitar and voice weaving around the rhythm section. The album's final two tracks 'Lifelike' and 'Dub Over' cascade into one another, becoming one, acting as a perfect analogy to 'Void Moments' mutability, both musically and lyrically. FACS continue to evolve and avoid being ensnared by genre.
