London natives Trapdoor Records and Joss Ryan have teamed up for Ryan’s debut EP, “A Dark Tale.” A beguiling story, “A Dark Tale” speaks in tones of love, dark times, attraction and deception. The first single and chapter, “Lost,” has an unruly energy, while also upholding a peaceful vibe.
Each track from “A Dark Tale” is a combination of contradictions. Whether it’s uncomfortable and uplifting, or somber dark vibes that impart angsty happiness, tension is the common thread throughout.
‘These days we just want to make weird stuff’ – X&G
It’s a commendable ethos for a constantly evolving electronic music scene, to avoid any specific genre or trend & stand alone with a unique sound. The Salt Lake City pair do exactly this with the ‘4am’ EP, a 5 track collection that displays the versatile yet cohesive sound X&G have to offer.
From the very first track, the EP feels like a lucid dream, influenced by a wild variety of sounds, maneuvering with ease from the eccentric ‘MAUB’ & ‘Mancha’ through to ‘Home’, a hypnotizing composition with vocals from the talented Kida.
The full ’4am’ EP will be available 13th April via iTunes.
