It wouldn’t be a Timedance release if it wasn’t an innovative blend of head-spinning textures.
The next outing on the Bristol-based imprint comes from local duo Robin Stewart and Harry Wright aka Giant Swan, who have been challenging perceptions of techno with their raw, industrial and downright rude productions, that channel everything from post-punk to drone. Improvisation is a significant part of their creative process, and it shows through the unpredictable tangents their tracks spiral out to.
Making their Timedance debut, Giant Swan present two tracks that bristle with volatile intensity, somehow hitting a rare sweet spot between hypnotic and jarring.
Fronting the record is the spiky ‘Celebrate The Last 30 Years of Human Ego’, that douses vocal yelps, arpeggiated synths and heavy bassweight in a sea of reverb. Listen below.
'Celebrate The Last 30 Years of Human Ego' is out via Timedance on October 27, pre-order it on Bandcamp
