Boomkat Product Review:
Berlin duo Grand River and Enrica Falqui are YHDESSA, exploring electro-inspired ambient textures on "Along the Simple Line".
Following their collaborations for Grand River's own One Instrument label, Aimée Portioli and Enrica Falqui finally get the opportunity to spread their wings on "Along the Simple Line", their first substantial release. On opening track 'Emotional Body', they merge cinematic strings with moody electronics, slowly descending into distorted darkness. 'All Rooms' is more percussive but the duo somehow manage to retain the general ambient mood, centering their rhythmic soundscape in disorienting psychedelic effects and razor-edge noise.
'Hier und Da' is more straightforward, leaning into an early "Artificial Intelligence"-cum-Monolake mode, while closing track 'Prion' strips away the beats again, leaving fuzzy analog sequences and dissociated voices.
