Largely ignoring vocals & rigid structures, she seizes instead the provocative digital sludge explored in ‘Antenna’ & runs with it in a direction few would have expected.

Essentially, this sounds most reminiscent of the ambient material found in late-’80s-to-early-’90s hardcore, extrapolated into full songs. ‘Aquifier’ high-end twitters with bird-like gestures, drifting glassy pads & synthesised vox, underpinned by a persistent, spasming, auto-filtered motif. the title track, with its restrained thumping 4/4 rhythm & understated hissing acid bassline, is a mesmerising, pulse-driven exploration of ambient tension. the final track rounds off the record with a beatless, smeared haze of synthesised, string-like pads & long, lilting vocalisations over a tense, reedy, modal harmony. if you like holly Herndon, Kelly lee owens, Fatima al qadiri or actress, check this out!
