TBR September 17
Smooth but experimental introductory phrases give an allure of mystery. It is as if this record has been started after it was meant to, but this is not the case. A crisp cymbal riff edges over the side of the mix as a clapping and bass drum combo underscore the piece. A sweet vocal expression tops the track with a selection of emotive hollers. Addictive tapped drum beats add a layer of cream to the light but well rounded mix.
Being a programmer from Ableton, Sieren clearly knows a thing or two about this platform, and the general job of a sound engineer. This expertise has been clearly stamped on Ascension EP in the way that it flows wonderfully in inventive but also demonstrably pleasant ways. As the record progresses, the tone of the music shifts with each track.
There is a heaviness to the EP which mellows out over the course of each number. What starts out as a bassy and beat driven frolic into sound realms made from overlapping rhythms and samples, becomes smooth and drone like pulses of string and synth. A calming down quality can be given to the progression, vocals bring layers of feeling that clasp like holding hands over a variation of compositions, ranging from technical and industrial to the dreamy and tranquil.
