An expansive EP comprising heady beats, post-rave influence, natural ambience and euphoria is next up from Shall Not Fade. Owls EP comes courtesy of Samuel Powell, a fresh find from Ireland who shows himself as one to watch with this stylish collection of tracks.
The opening track, ‘Fold’, is a gorgeously produced composition which reaches explosive heights of dramatic stabs and distorted synth lines. ‘Detuned’ follows with high-tension pads and a punchy breakdown, pacing straight into the pounding techno pulse of ‘Echrete’. More heavy beats come from ‘Seldom’, a post-digital rave soundscape. The title track, ‘Owls’, strips all of this back into a gentle ambient exploration, lead by subtle piano that draws the EP to a meditative close.
