Boomkat Product Review:
Moiré pitches up on Spectral Sound with a hazy batch of his patented, wobbly house and ambient electronic textures.
“Songs are pared down to their essential elements: quick blips of sound, minimalist rhythms, quick flashed of vocals that are more texture than sound. Overall, Lines + Colours is starker, a move from cool neon to outright black and white. On “Brixton,” the same two-note phrase blinks over and over, and the song’s use of symmetrical structures slowly becomes hypnotic the longer it goes on. The title track is more hectic – darting pointillist electronics and a dry, steady rhythm – but it also sticks with a circular shape, layering in faint whispers of sound in the backdrop, but never diverting from the established melodic pattern. As its title implies, Lines + Colours is about getting down to the basic elements – shape and shade – and exploring all of the ways to use them.”
