Their latest EP Hypercentre , released last week, takes them in to slightly different waters with the compositions being less secluded, which allows the voices to take greater spotlight and hence less sultry in countenance.

The first of the four tracks on the EP – Allegra – showcases the lighter texturing, which conversely, has a deeper resonance of beat and a tempo in to which the pulse of the audience syncopates.

Hypercentre – EP – Slogan is available on iTunes.*

Their music has a signature sound of contrasted ranged highs and lows comprised of electronic loops and soft beat drops – Letting A Flower Die continues in similar theme in what is a very crowded market place.

Marking the song out of the general mêlée of the genre is a remarkable and impressive voice which, in this track, is given greater spotlight and room to express itself than previous music of theirs and thereby also seemingly creating more sharply defined electronica loops and resultingly generating a distinct space and distance of its own identity.

The second song to surface from the EP, which was itself released as a standalone single that is available on bandcamp on the 15th,  Still – showcases their immersive soundtracks.

Combinations of synthesised natural percussion and voices along with electronica creates music that fuses with the synapses of the listener resulting in them, the audience, becoming not a casual observer rather an intrinsic element of the compositions.

The combinations of electronica and instrumentation wash through the ears in multifarious blurry layers, giving the compositions a sense of other-worldliness that captures the imagination and finds the listener ensconced in their own thought processing of the roughly thirty three minutes, eight track, album, which is available on bandcamp.

The coaxial of hyper-fluttering percussive and dreamy soundscape particularly holding attention, as exemplified in the antepenultimate song Limerence.
