Thread - Goldhawk EP
Following ‘Conningham EP’ Reach return with another uncompromising 12” from duo Thread. Dropping it’s predecessors unashamedly raw bashfulness, ''Goldhawk EP'' is a subtler, deeper affair yet it still maintains its bass heavy, electro leaning edge.
The first track ''Ellerslie'' sets the tone for the EP; a trip through the cosmos, with shimmering synth lines taking you on a journey through the galaxy. Subtle variations float effortlessly on the driving rhythm patterns, the bassline only a distant presence. The 2nd cut ''Sycamore'' is another journey into the deep, a slightly more housey affair; a motorik drum patterns carrying an eerie, deep atmosphere that is punctuated by melodic patterns appearing unexpectedly.
On the flip ''The Grove'' instantly works up a sweat - claps, dark synth riffs and a relentless drum pattern. Ferocious, in your face dance floor work out. Rounding-off the EP in style ''Goldhawk'' is the sparsest of the tracks on offer. Built on bare bones frame, there’s melodic flourishes, subtle production trickery, galloping along a 2 step-ish percussion pattern. Thread further cementing their eclectic production style with this strong EP.
