|Availability:||OUT OF STOCK|
|Status:||SIGN UP FOR RESTOCK NOTICE|
Following on from their Record Store Day 2016 Looped EP release, which featured remixes by Dauwd and Lubomyr Melnyk, Kiasmos return with three new tracks and a remix by Tale Of Us on their Swept EP.
Recorded in various locations including Reykjavík and Berlin, the EP opens with Drawn, a four-minute percussion fuelled track with gentle piano motifs. Gaunt features the addition of ambient synths and a drum loop, underpinned by slow-moving chords. Title track Swept showcases a more club-oriented beat structure alongside Kiasmos’ signature emotive instrumentation.
Closing the EP is a remix from Berlin-based duo Tale of Us who met Kiasmos in London and twist the original downbeat title track into their distinctively dark aesthetic. Pulsating hats and a driving bass loop add pace as the track builds toward an epic breakdown.
Kiasmos is made up of Icelandic BAFTA-winning composer Ólafur Arnalds, known for his unique blend of minimal piano and string compositions with electronic sounds, and Janus Rasmussen from the Faroe Islands, known as the mastermind of the electro-pop outfit Bloodgroup.
Heavyweight vinyl produced by Erased Tapes in 2015.
