Exclusive Premiere: STUFF. “Strata” (Sdban Ultra Records)
Strata is the first track from the second STUFF. album entitled “old dreams new planets”.
“old dreams new planets” features the Belgium based quintet at their finest. Hybrid drums and nervous synths fighting over who can claim the deep basses. It makes you doubt whether you’re at a rave or at a fusion jazz concert in some late 80’s basement. “Strata” really opens up just before halfway, when everything blends together and takes a unexpected melodic turn.
The music seems to want to leave the uncanny valley of half-human sounds, but the trip continues in a strange but fascinating concrete jungle. It never lets you get rid of the sense that it could all come to a grinding halt with every heartbeat. It’s a song that wears off your repeat button, but you won’t mind a bit.
“old dreams new planets” will be released April 28, 2017 on Sdban Ultra Records.
