A five track introduction to the new Blacktape release, These fleeting moments. Only one track on this single appears on the album.

Picking up Blacktape’s classic 90s darkwave, ethereal sound; original vocalist Oscar returns on their 30th anniversary.

Includes a 2016 recording of "through sky blue rooms" with Dani on vocals, and the Spanish version of the first movement of "The vastness of life."

“Gently lit by the existential gleam of a dying sun”
– Soundscape Magazine

This single includes four non-album tracks.

Given where Black Tape for a Blue Girl began over a quarter of a century ago with founder Sam Rosenthal’s exploration of brooding, extended electronics and strings meshed with deeply revealing lyrics and darkly textured, melodramatic vocal performances, it’s striking to see his muse and inspiration reach a new peak on their 11th album, These Fleeting Moments. The ethereal, gothic and darkAmbient stylings that made them one of the originators of American darkwave are offered on this release which coincides with the band’s 30th anniversary. Rosenthal reinvigorates their classic sound with the return of original vocalist Oscar Herrera, absent from music for 17 years.

This is the Spanish version of “the vastness of life (part 1).” It’s the first Blacktape song sung entirely in another language.

2 limitless
The album track.

3 alaska
This is the same backing track as “limitless,” but with different lyrics / melody.

4 through sky blue rooms (2016)
Dani and Oscar perform a lovely rendition of this track off 1989’s Ashes in the brittle air.
