Soft As Snow: Glass Body

Soft As Snow: Glass Body

Swedish electro-pop, reminiscent of The Knife, Zola Jesus, witch-house (during the downtempo tracks), LA Vampires and Not Not Fun lo-fi bedroom disco in general. “Glass Body” has UK garage type beats. “Halo Heart” starts slow and spooky, switches to more uptempo beats in the last few minutes. “All Our Beasts” is a slow noisy spooky interlude. “Black Birds” is another slow spooky witchy track. “Drops Of Armour” starts with cascading synths, kind of falls apart and gets sloppy after a minute or two but comes back, and then has dubby conga-heavy 4/4 beats. The final track is a more distorted, echo heavy mix of “Halo Heart” by Asher Levitas.
