Words by Tim Hakki @TimHakki
This incredibly understated and beautiful song from Icelandic duo Kiasmos is one of the more impressive electronic pieces to have come our way. Taking obvious stylistic cues from Bonobo, it’s a plaintive little piece that clearly revels in the satisfaction of finding musical sweet spots. Built around one chord progression they employ enough variation to make it a highly engaging listen. While there’s a definite melancholia, there’s also a palpable feeling of joy, hope and optimism.
Kiasmos mark their return in 2017 with a new 12” EP titled Blurred — available worldwide on October 6th via Erased Tapes. Pre-order here
