Martin‘s Phobiq debut starts out with the discordant riffs of the title track, seeping through a rubber-band bassline and industrial-tinged effects.
Things continue in the same vein on “Plane 22” where the crackling, percussion-led rhythm section provides the momentum, while the rise-and-fall bass intertwines with mangled, spoken word passages.
Closing up with the low-end-heavy “Wake Up”, we are introduced to a looped-out ride with quirky chords leading the way as the affair emanates a sleek, streamlined vibe throughout.
