After their appearance on our “Abilities” compilation, Steam Shape come out swinging with four shadowy tracks.
“Output” is up first, with hypnotic electronics clearing the way for grand stabs and melodic riffs over a grinding rhythm section. “Eris” picks up from there and whips out the looped-out vocals, as acidic phrases and shattering sub-bass interlock effortlessly with the rocksteady drumset.
The title tracks’s rumbling low-end provides the perfect backdrop for creeping synthesis and tasty, staccato chords which ultimately lead us to the closing “Predestination” where we are introduced to frantic claps, unfolding synths and haunting phrases.
