Digits :: "Rachel Marie"

Tense and claustrophobic dance music colors the interstices of "Rachel Marie", the latest single from synth-pop architect, Digits. A club track for your interior monologue, the synths are intentionally constricted, arraying themselves in these taut, little rows behind a hushed melody in the spirit, if not the bombast, of Dave Gahan. Digits never reveals much about this "Rachel Marie", another one of those proper noun pop princesses with a song about her, but the long and unrequited call in the chorus gives her all the necessary character depth. As he insists, she is the only one for him, but this is no love story; rather, it is a modern, well-shuttered message in a bottle.
