Taken from her album ‘Auraa’, Ellen Allien’s ‘True Romantics’ and ‘Hello’ make up a double header. The release is her latest album project, inspired by the notion that we are not alone in this realm, exploring the possibilities of unseen entities cohabiting with us in our mortal plane.
‘True Romantics’ operates at full canter, the beats percolating as heartfelt pads drift gently way above the low end. Emotive analogue bleeps and a cyborg-esque pitched-down vocal add to the cut, complementing the percussion to create the composition.
On the flip ‘Hello’ combines acid lines and beats. The drums crash down wit hforce as a bassline sends out waves of vibration.
‘True Romantics’ and ‘Hello’ are out 15 May on Bpitch
