Ruina Circular is the debut EP by Mexico City’s darkwave band Espejo Convexo. Tasteful ethereal wave constructed around clever drum machine beats, guitars riffs drowned in feedback, and delicate voices sometimes hanging around like whispers.
RIYL: Chasms, Love Spirals Downwards, Cadaver Em Transe, The Chameleons UK and Cranes.
