In a Beautiful Place Out In the Country
Despite their electro roots, the Scottish brothers’ sound gradually adapted to their pastoral surroundings. The title of this EP is self-explanatory: The synths drift like wind-kissed groves, and the beats are as lazy as a lakeside summer day. Three tracks highlighting their trademark elements—wistful chord progressions, tape-warped textures, skeletal hip-hop beats—are as immediate as anything in their catalog, while “Zoetrope” lives up to its namesake with flickering chords and Tungsten glow—a closed-lids movie for the mind.
