“Behold Rusk” is a bouncy opener, that uses a moody bassline and abstract atmosphere fuelled with a dark funk from brave, brooding sounds.
The second track “Bawdy” combines intricate melody tones with a thumping beat to create a clever, characterful, cerebral piece.
“Gritty To Us” has a darker feel overall, with a shadowy ambience and killer, pulsing, modular-style stabs that rip the airwaves with a raw and powerful aesthetic.
The final offering “Platina Debris” is a track that focuses on rolling percussive elements from the start, and derives more industrial influences to shape its aggressive, sharp, and metallic hook.
