Highestpoint return to Phobiq and show their intentions right from the beginning of this three-part EP. The title track’s discordant stabs and soaring electronics act as the boys’ trademark sound while a haunting riff sets the mood and the bubbling bass provides the momentum. On “They Think They Know”, things take a cavernous turn and even more disharmonic synth action is introduced as the rocksteady rhythm section acts as a sonic building block.
Closing up with the loopy sensibilities of “Weird Experience”, persistent percussion steals the spotlight as it intertwines with off-kilter programming and streamlined washes.
