This has been the week that has brought an end to some lengthy waiting. It might not quite have been the 5 or so years that Tom Vek kept us waiting, but Somersault have been just as quiet and secretive about putting anything of their own out since and early, mesmerising performance at the Deaf Institute last year. They’re not quite as loose as they were back then, but this leaner, tighter sound has made them even better. The tracks for this EP – entitled Supine – came in last night and they are beautiful – an edifying mixture of surf influences and stargazing electro, but that description barely does it justice.
Somersault are Michael Hart and Andrew Hillock and you can listen to their 4 track opus below.
The EP will be available for purchase on cassette through Ducktapes in the coming weeks.
