“Dissonance” by Downtrend Shapes Renewal.
The four tracks on ‘Dissonance’ exhibit the same, new tentative direction of synthesised beats, vocals and straining layered guitars as the ‘larger-whole’ they are cut from. Yet, they stand defiant, making a bold claim to the new area they exist in. ‘Dissonance’ comprises of four tracks – cuttings, if you would – from a bigger body of work. Melodic highs and crisp, rumbling bass thunder through to you as you listen to this.
