Fresh off final 12 months’s critically acclaimed Shades album In Praise of Darkness, Eprom has shifted focus again on his solo challenge with a forthcoming EP on Deadbeats due early this summer time. “The Cat” is the primary single off the Aikon EP, and I can safely say it’s not like every other observe you’ll hear this 12 months.
Imagine Rusko’s wobble sound stripped all the way down to its barest type, hardly any melody — simply drums, and synths. Imagine that, and perhaps you’ll get midway to the truth of “The Cat.” The true nature of the observe is tough to pin down. Between the innocuous observe title, the otherworldly observe artwork, and the thoughts boggling sound of the observe itself, it’s exhausting to say simply what Eprom had in thoughts right here.
“The Cat” undoubtedly isn’t a observe you may dance to. And with a lot empty house within the observe, it’s exhausting to even consider an acceptable lighting sequence for a reside present. And but, it’s addictive. I can’t cease listening to it, attempting to imprint each little stab and nuance in my thoughts.
Listen to “The Cat” under and perhaps you’ll see what I imply.
