Litanic Mask only came to our attention a short time ago, but we’ve already played their tracks countless times. The Portland goth-pop duo have little information available about themselves online; only that they are Kenna Jean on vocals and producer Mark Evan Burden. One listen to their perfect melancholic melodies, however, is enough to capture the attention so that little else matters. Comparisons to acts like Zola Jesus and Grimes have been thrown around, and it’s a good jumping-off point, but Litanic Mask inhabit their own twilight world. It’s a land where cold beats pulse, synths twinkle like snow and Halloween is every day.
