Maina - Love them, Hate Them

The vocals really make this release, throwing words as potent conveyors to a structure supported by skeletal electronics that erupt along a frighteningly pleasing and spacious melody.

In some places glitchy, the tunes are fractured enough to evade predictability with their continuity cut sharply into focus - trimmed to the bone.

The vocals evaporate towards the end of the album replaced by technological debris that washes over you in an itchy broken pulse of a beat. Only faint echoes of 'Come On' can be heard slipping under the distant waves as you are compelled to play it all again.

Favourite track: Love them, Hate Them
