No stranger to Phobiq, Kalden Bess unleashes 4 tracks of unfathomable inspiration in a style that is truly his own.
Starting out with the title track, the steamrolling rhythm section propels sinister synths and fuzzed-out riffs to the manic edge while soulful vocals become the perfect balancing contrast. “Awkward” continues in the same vein with more vocals of the haunting kind, eerie notes and a mysterious vibe throughout.
“Studio 54” completely flips the script and stomps wildly, relying solely on the power of the drums and the cleverly sparse arrangement. The EP closes with “OG”, where things get more hypnotic, the snares are crackling and the basslines are grinding.
