following on from the very zen 'memory streams', this ep dials up the classicism with lush strings, creating a sound that swallows you up in its expansive beauty.


Sonically, it explores a similar world to its full-length predecessor, but where 'Mystery Streams' focused on a punchier live sound, WWT explores modern classical and ambient textures. The ep features the duo Fran and Flora (Francesca Ter-Berg cello & Flora Curzon) on strings, but also builds looped saxophones, drums and synths parts into a rich tapestry of sound. Odd time signatures underpin a surprisingly emotional build that resolves in richly layered strings. It draws influence from the emotional, spiritual minimalism of composers such as Arvo Part and John Adams. Winding Snake again takes influence from American minimalism but places it against strong, modern drum rhythms and organs.
