Boomkat Product Review:
Originally released as a double A-sided 7", 'Baud With You / Shot Away' is a textbook dispatch from the Mordant Music furnace. Opening with a copyright baiting sample from The Carpenters, 'Baud With You' slowly finds itself surrounded by chugging rhythms and a pitter of electronic melody that, when further enhanced by the chilled vocals, suddenly takes on a distinctly unsettling stance. Drifting out of sight amongst hushed flute, 'Baud With You' is sinister in the best possible sense - recalling the best of 1980's noir pop. On the back you'll find the shuddering 'Shot Away'; wherein Mordant get a little more frisky, but no less enigmatic, for a selection of brittle electronic pop.
