Mountain Divide EP
Having blown the doors off with their R&S debut ”Containing a Thousand’, the duo return with a devastating new single that concentrates and coalesces their sound to unprecedented new heights.
Opener ‘Mountain Divide’ hits the listener with a epic blitzkrieg of bass, juddering noise, and howling, subterranean feedback, cut through with fizzing drums, to tremendous atmospheric effect: “Like screaming into the wind on the top of a mountain” in the words of the boys themselves.
‘Mathfall’ is a sinuous groover, built around a lolloping bass sequence, grime infused beats, sinister chords and vocal chatter. ‘Mon La’ rounds out the release in a more introspective mood, heartbreaking pitch bent chords wash together like Boards Of Canada heard through a broken tube-radio
Their intricate, yet muscular soundscapes and skittering percussion have an epic, alien quality that set them head and shoulders above their less ambitious peers. Having a background in punk, metal and broken beat as well as noise and techno helps give Lakker their truly unique and uncompromising sound.
Currently touring their blistering live /AV set across the planet and hard at work on their debut LP for R&S you’ll be hearing a lot more from Lakker very soon.
