Attacca is the new EP which is out today via Upwind Records. We have the pleasure to premiere the first excerpt “Samovar” which show intense and “penetrating” rhythms, refined beats and an evocative subtext. Their words about the new EP:
“Part of a basic idea of a loop of two chords, ATTACCA is the result of several collective improvisations and research sessions, where the ideas of each musician come together and agree to create a common sound. This minimalist-influenced music mixes acoustic percussion instruments and repetitive grooves of electronic music. The title is another inspiration from classical music, referring to the initial training of musicians.”
