The title track kicks off this EP, a long-running, emotive piece entitled 'A.I. Talk'. The digitized vocal speaks about humans destroying nature - a very apt track in light of the damage being done to Earth and its climate right now. The bass bubbles away while a sobering motif keeps the mood somewhere between melancholy and optimistic. It's an epic, mesmerizing cut that will lift dancefloors.
Next up is 'Ram', which has an understated intro with sombre bass writhing under a tense high-pitched buzz. As the track starts to unfold, an unusual melody shivers above the low end. Steadily Glowal increase the pressure, turning up the intensity until we enter a short breakdown and the track continues to whistle its unique melody.
Track three is 'Parallel People', a dark film-noir-esque cut with a spoken word vocal that tells a story throughout the track. The warped, mysterious voice is eerie yet compelling, supported by a percussion-heavy instrumental that creates a rousing atmosphere. It's deep, murky and totally enchanting.
Closing the EP is 'Crystal', a morose cut with gentle keys and a subdued atmosphere. While the kick drums pump this one along, the sorrowful main melody taps into your deepest emotional centre. This is a sublime piece of electronica that grows and develops unraveling its heartrending narrative.
Glowal's unique style is evident on all four tracks of this stunning EP, it's full of emotion, depth and powerful atmospherics. Inspired!
