Ah dear people, welcome back at another new professional ‘review’. This time you could waste your time by reading my gibberish words about the Absentia EP by Harley Cream. I know this is fairly obvious from the info above this text, yet it feels good to make this post looks bigger. Let’s walk you through it;

Prelusion is giving me the shivers, banging into my hollow head from the inside out with industrial farts from cosmic robots infecting the membrane with a possible layer of hallucinogens. I think it’s the sound that we need to apply before diving into some superb digital witchcraft.

But instead of old school sparkles the release electrocutes the ears with a gritty noise before starting afresh showcasing a creepy melody with a weird voice who reminds me of the stepmother of Snow-white trying to sell a poisonous apple. The music gets a beat and electric bass that will lure costumers in a trance to become ready to bite those forbidden fruits voluntarily. Mm delicious!

Purgatory’ keeps it creepy, with an original take on the whole witch/house genre; a ecstatic voice on a crushing noise beat that hobbles slowly and efficiently before hinting at a quicker one. It’s solidified with odd sampled synth material to get you that ‘trapped’ feeling of despair. You might have took a bite of the apple, but now someone might want to take s bite out of you.

‘I only wanna see you smile’ is to the point, featuring a crunchy voice pronouncing what it only wants to see. But somehow the music is creepy, making me doubt that this smile is a natural one and perhaps one that is carved into your face with a knife. Still i presume this tune can be romantic in a gothic-kind-of-way.

The last track reveals a hidden knowledge; bitches are witches too’. This brand new information is brought in a mystique fashion, with a slow beat and a moody warm mood it’s been delightfully delivered. I thought it was rather useful and in general this little EP flew by like a witch on a broomstick; pretty high and unpredictable and yet very concrete in which way it’s wanting to go! I’m not a witch or a wizard (neither a black cat or a fruit salesperson) but would love to hear more from where this has came from.. maybe it is the result of a black magic spell, or this EP might actually be good stuff!
