Departing from the band based setup of previous releases, Acolytes continue their exploration of loop based paradigms with Rupture. The release expands upon the murky jarring patchwork asthetic
of the 2012 release, replacing brooding song structures with a more driving, visceral and relentless sound.
Rupture encapsulates the paranoia and agnst felt in an increasingly unrecognisable world. Liquified rhythms attempt to define an unmappable headspace typified by IO overload and wired hyperactivity, become mired in deep delays and sedate unease.
While ostensibly computer music, tracks such as “feelings 2” deviate from the clinical “on the grid” sensibilities associated with the genre, where out of sync drums and synth lines in eliptic orbits take it to messier lofi territories with no defined sense of shape or tempo.
