Hot on the heels of Kara-Lis Coverdale's rework of Úlfur's "Serpentine" comes the Alex Somers remix of "Arborescence", premiered today on The 405. Somers contributes a drifting, building unifying mesh of angelic choral foundations and vast, distorted sound-structures - listen below.
Stay tuned for the final remix in this trilogy, Oren Ambarchi's take on "Tómið Titrar". The full EP will be released on July 20th - pre-order the EP here and get all tracks sent to you as soon as they're released.
"...a collection of awe-inspired, nature-loving grandiose compositions that called for mental investment in their aural wonderland."
-The 405 on Arborescence, the album.
"...he pares back the more frantic moments and turns them into cool wisps of sound, like minor gusts kicking up off an icy surface. Where the original song ascends into a frantic, pulverising percussive crescendo, Somers has turned the track inside out, added more organic sounds, and allowed its own natural energy pull tension from the atmosphere around it. It's quite a stunning reimagination of Úlfur's 'Arborescence', while staying linked to the original roots."
