Track Of The Day: Permahorn – ‘Into The Dreams (Slut)’

As songs go, it doesn’t get much more forbidding than this. London-based duo Permahorn – consisting of the Scottish-Serbian mix of Saint Pauly and Jexy Pesic – anticipate the release of debut My Blood Carries My Dreams Away with a track that’s just like a clear winter’s evening – as alluring as it is dark.  

The influence of Low pervades ‘Into the Dreams’s whirling guitar intro, never far from falling into a minor key, and its bleepy, glitchy ending. Perhaps that’s not too surprising, given the influence of its producer, Kramer, the “godfather of slowcore”, who worked on the Minnesotans’ second album Long Division.  

The vocals on this track are pure Nico deadpan with the hint of a snarl, but with the backing of the likes of Morphine or Galaxie 500. Listening to it and allowing yourself to soak up its gloomy sparkle leaves you with the same feelings as watching a David Lynch film: beguiled, bewildered and oddly sated.  


My Blood Carries My Dreams Away, 
the upcoming album from Permahorn, is out 1st December 2017 via Shimmy-500.
