off / on
cosmic synth trio from brooklyn's 2nd lp is a darker universe, it's terrain more enigmatic & aggressive than their eponymous 2011 release.
recorded by the trio of mark dwinell, sophie lam & george bennett, 'off/on' combines swirling arpeggiations, gnarled sequences, & deconstructed motorik rhythms to conjure an atmosphere of entropic propulsion by unseen forces. yet the emotional summits of 'off/on' are greater than those of its predecessor, its crystalline melodic peaks made more pronounced by the shadowed depths below. it is this synthesis that gives 'off/on' its singular vision; a sense of unity forged by its own inner tensions.
