Proper Micro NV - Oblivious

Info: Proper Micro NV is the alias of Limerick singer/songwriter/producer Rory Hall. The 22 year old has embraced electronic music of all kinds since 2012. 

Hall revels in experimental electronic music, a move that has seen him being compared to James Blake and Mount Kimbie.

Hall has received recognition from Irish electronic songstress and former Moloko front-woman Roisin Murphy; who called his voice "Gorgeous" via social media. His debut EP titled 'EP1' was released in June 2016 to positive reviews. The Irish Times said that Proper Micro NV's vocal was "One of the most interesting new voices on the Irish scene in some time". They complimented the EP by saying that "it was a great showcase for Proper Micro NV's distinctive, soulful, bittersweet vocals and off-kilter electronica. On the 1st of July 2016, Hall was announced by RTÉ 2fm as one of 30 acts shortlisted by an expert judging panel to perform at Electric Picnic. 

On the 7th of December, Hall released his second EP 'It's always raining' via Plasmapool records. The first single 'Flaws' was released on the 3rd of November. In early 2017, music platform Spotify selected Flaws for their official Fresh Finds playlist, causing a large increase in listenership and popularity. Nialler9 called Flaws "a minimal hushed highlight.

This week Proper Micro NV released single 'Oblivious' from his well-received EP Colours which we previously reviewed here and felt that it was definitely one of the best Irish EP's to be released in 2017, we stand by that. 'Oblivious' summarises Hall's current sound perfectly, from the ambient low-lit effects which shadow his much-loved vocal style to the mellow hum of the beat, it has a very Air feeling about it, like something you might find on the quieter moments of Pocket Symphony. There's also a nice 90's house club vibe to the track, with the downtempo feel inducing you into a deep and pleasant trance by song's end. Hall is also currently working on his final single release from Colours which will be accompanied by a video so watch this space.
