Published Jul 13, 2015Scottish electronic producer SEØUEL is preparing to drop his sophomore release — an EP entitled Reykjavik — later this month, and in anticipation of its arrival, Exclaim! is pleased to premiere "Subtle" from the forthcoming offering.
While his previous EP drew inspiration from the Czech Republic, the new one was inspired by the crisp, stark isolation of Iceland. SEØUEL's music continues to reflect his on-the-road lifestyle, weaving in and out of venues and festivals, though Reykjavik hears him pausing to appreciate the mystery of the Icelandic countryside.
Spacious and eerie like the landscape that inspired it, "Subtle" still brings high-energy, intricately arranged techno to the table. Moments of suspense give way to bursts of dance-inducing synth spirals and percussive beats.
Reykjavik officially lands on July 24 via Discorder Recordings, but you can give "Subtle" a spin in the player below right now and pre-order the upcoming EP here.
