Boomkat Product Review:
The spirit of Pita lives on in a0n0’s battle of bristling noise and winsome melody for Superpang
Taking their 2nd bow on the label after ‘Unicorn Dream’ (2021) and contributing to the ‘Get This: 32 Tracks For Free - A Tribute to Peter Rehberg’ this year, Sendai, Japan’s a0n0 fulminates coruscating levels of noisy lushness and more sublime sensations on ‘City Lights’, featuring a remix by intriguing newcomer Onokio.
The title tunes hits right there for fans of Pita’s classic ‘Get Out’ with emotive synth arrangements smothered in satisfying degrees of distorted atonality, allowing the sweetness to burst thru at opportune moments. In ‘Rros Coad’ the barbed beauty strikes again, perhaps more tempered, and the EP continues to vacillate between struggling emotions with noisy prangs across the glitched thizz of ‘Sounds that ring in the outside world’, more palpable sugary feels in ‘Clouds v2’, and fidgety field recordings on ‘Informal fr1’, allowing Onokio to close with the peppery collage of their ‘Life’ remix recalling Kenji Kawai cut-ups.
