Marc Dwyer’s output as Buzz Kull is a mass of jagged synth lines and pounding drum machines, a testament to his personal sonic exploration over time. Dwyer’s music transcends the traditional archetype of darkwave by pushing pop sensibilities, focusing on different emotional states and boundaries.
Having only released a swathe of singles over the past five years, as well as the eponymous Buzz Kull 7″ on Fabrika records, Dwyer has remained an elusive but omnipresent figurehead of darker electronics within Sydney.
Buzz Kull’s debut LP, Chroma, takes cues from the sound of darkwave at it’s best, whilst wrangling the genre forcefully into the present. It rips away the rose-coloured glasses of the 21st century, destroying them in the face of an otherwise glamorous and hedonistic generation.
