Idle Hands spotlight another Bristol talent with Daisy Moon’s lissom debut of ambient-techno-pop
A pivotal member of Bristol’s famously tight-knit music community, both as a DJ at the Housework nights with Shanti Celeste, Gramrcy and Golesworthy, and via the city’s Women In Music workshops, Daisy brings a clear and deep understanding of the dancefloor and sofa-bound sounds to her debut EP.
‘Geometry of Curves’ hovers at the edge of the ‘floor and the bedroom with lilting vox and syrupy subs angled for the swangers, while ‘Halcyon’ leans into washed out trip hop akin to a Young Echo cut. ‘Anemone’ also plays it down with its low key and squashed dembow swivel gilded by Grouper-esque vocal, and ‘Chambers’ squares up a ruder spin on early ‘90s ambient swagger balancing fluffy pads with rugged bass and languourous glossolalia.
