R. Missing – Unsummering


R. Missing are an indie rock duo from New York City, composed of vocalist and bassist Sharon Shy and multi-instrumentalist Toppy. They are also known as The Ropes. The band has been compared to The Cure, Interpol, Garbage, Poe, The Knife and the Velvet Underground, and they cite 1950s French New Wave as an influence. Tricky sampled The Ropes’ song “Love is a Chain Store” on the lead single “Does It” from his 2013 album “False Idols”. Unsummering is a mini album released in 2017 when the band changed their name to R. Missing. Music magazine The Big Takeover wrote: “Unsummering manages to be even more isolated lyrically than The Ropes’ famously nihilistic previous work, fully embracing complete detachment. Musically, fraught guitar and synth textures paint an image of an unstable world, held together only by tightly quantized electronic drum beats and Shy’s coolly dispassionate vocal”.
