A couple of weeks ago, we presented you the superb video for Sentry‘s ‘Station Crucial‘ directed by movement artist Masumi Saito and filmmaker Guy Wigmore. Getting closer to the release date of his mini LP ‘Stranger As A Friend‘ on Proto Sites, we’re glad to premiere the third extract off Sentry’s promising seven-track debut.
Shutting the A side, ‘Surrender‘ abolishes all continuity – rather much letting a chaos of Janus-faced frequencies and distorted mechanics do the talk. Rambling back and forth through malevolent leftfield alleys on auto-reverse mode, upright synth slivers slit through thick lo-freq envelops all coated in tape-hiss and white-noise.
Whether you’re an appreciator of raw techno oddity or a tangled bass-melter kind of person, Sentry’s rough-hewn experimental won’t leave you cold. Weird, twisted 4/4 poetics going off in full effect.
Stranger As A Friend is released via Proto Sites in February, order a vinyl copy from Bandcamp.
