The dudes over at Automatic Writing write some bombastic electro-pop jams. Period. All it takes is a casual perusing of their Sound Cloud page to learn this. Evidently after a year of stewing, a pair of these said jams were ripe for vinyl, as the duo is releasing a 7” via their Bandcamp page.
“Falling” ping-pongs between industrial anthem — full of machine clanks and robotic clacks — and atmospheric drift with soaring synth lines sailing you above the fray. When vocals arrive, they match perfectly with whatever the supplied background is at the moment: cold, monotonic when the beat’s mechanical; loose and connecting over the lofty aerial sections.
Not to be outdone, “Continuous,” opens with a full thirty seconds of semi-static noise before the electro-beat drops and the dance floor invariably gets filled. The bass rumblings are attention-catching (especially the swells on the chorus), the vocals are entrancing, and the Born Gold-like flutters throughout are just the icing on the cake on one-hell-of-a fun track.
