HOT TRACK | 'Tormentor' - Enter Sceptre

Enter...Enter Sceptre with their captivating new single 'Tormentor'.

Enter Sceptre is Cascina Caradonna's brainchild, with 'Tormentor' their second single - debut 'Majesty' dropped at the start of the year. Both releases set an exciting yet perhaps enigmatic foundation, one that is undoubtedly solid yet, in some senses, very much like quicksand...because you find yourself being pulled into these atmospheric pieces - worlds - that Cascina is creating.

'Tormentor' brings ominous vibes, opening with orchestral tones, vocals rippling out as the track builds and builds into a brilliant burst of synths, Cascina's enchanting voice carrying the transition of sounds. It's brilliant and bold, striking and stylish.

'I started with the line, 'you don’t know, where I go, my Tormentor' as the melody came to me during a stale class one morning. I wrote verse after verse in my notebook, nodding my head every so often to assure the teacher I was in agreement with her lecture. Back at home that night I began crafting the beat, pads and lead line for the instrumental bit. The bulk of the song made me want to dance, and was so upbeat and happy,' Cascina shares about the track. 'There had to be more pain. I crafted an intro out of violins, and pretty soon had two completely separate songs on my hands. Transitioning from one section to the other was a complete accident as the delay effect on my vocals was being modulated as the tempo rose. The feedback of it in the silence was so good that I kept it as it was, and enjoyed the journey the song presented itself as.'

More music is slated to come this year and we at Tour Bus Tunes can't wait.
