Reaching the fifth and final release for the year, we are incredibly excited to present you ‘‘Vortex’’:
The EP has been constructed over an intense array of melancholic emotions, using noise, crunch and melodies for reinforcement. Every track expresses this in it’s own unique manner, all 4 tracks being very different from each other creating contrast and variety throughout.
Let us begin with the A1 track, Instinct. This versatile ensemble of eclectic sound starts out with a bouncing beat and some noise slashes left and right, we quickly emerge into something as we dive deeper into the puddle of illusive acoustic. Tip toeing one by one slowly we are absorbed into a simple melody that suddenly fills in the empty space. As the depth of the creative abyss manifests, the melodies get thicker and thicker until it drops into a light release of calming tones, ending into a gentle release of soothing sound.
Moving onto A2 track, Imaginary feelings. We start off with a rattle of kick drums, rumbling around creating a whirling loop. Slowly a couple of simple bells add up to the beat, preparing us patiently for what is to come. We gently enter a screech of noise that develops into some lush uplifting chords that slowly bring us to an explosion where everything is dispersed and everything is broken. We are left with one synth which will lead us throughout the rest of the journey, the track expresses something very melancholic, but light and uplifting. It does what it says on the tin!
Moving onto the B-side, B1, Twister. This minimal track, containing a whirling mass of repetitive crunch sound guides us swiftly by simple sequence hats throughout to keep our attention. The track although very simple, expresses and communicates something very abstract leaving you at the knees of personal interpretation.
Finally we come to B2. Here we have a vortex of noise in different forms, floating, whirling and swirling around the spectrum like whips and lashes coming out from all directions, the attention on the bass has been reduced to keep the listener focused on the noise elements which guide you into the web of torment. As we dive into fog the noise piles up and slowly creates a nearly danceable groove, validated with the hi-hats. The track is fully noised up, funky, and does well to conclude the EP.
