HIN - Warmer Weather EP [Sound In Silence 064]

Released via the Greek Ambient imprint Sound In Silence on May 29th, 2k19 is the "Warmer Weather EP", the well suitably titled debut by the duo HIN which consists of Jerome Alexander and Justin Lee Radford. Put on the circuit as a limited, hand-numbered run of 300 copies their firstling opens with "The Lower Heat", a deep, organic, yet advanced dancefloor friendly take on tender Indietronica with a slight affinity for DreamPop whereas the follow up "Blue In Alkali" stays on a DreamPop-infused path whilst crossing even further into Indie-territories vibewise whilst still relying on a foundation of intricate electronic beat structures and even elements of Post Dubstep and Glitch in terms of production, building up into what could be named an anthem for lovers for a reason. Furthermore "Beneath The Lake" provides more of slightly off-kilter romantic uber-tenderness and is a little too sweet and sugary for our tastes, the "Red Sun" sonically shines through intimate piano tones and detailed, glitched out rhythm signatures that might be referred to as a more uplifting, sunnier and well Pop-friendly take on a Boards Of Canada-influenced sound and the final cut "Home"surely is about to resonate with followers of the SlowHouse / Romantic House movement for a reason. This is maybe the liveliest, beat-focused release on Sound In Silence so far and defo an interesting twist in the labels catalogue.
