They’re back. A few weeks ago the Bristol duo KOAN Sound put out news of their newest release, the Forgotten Myths EP. After dropping the full EP preview last week, KOAN Sound is now back with the EP’s debut single, “Strike”. The single showcases plenty of the glitch-infused percussion we’ve come to expect and love from the duo. The sound design only further embeds that glitch sound in the track, throwing synthesizer-based sound design from speaker to speaker. If you’ve got a multiple speaker surround sound system, just sit back and revel in the bass waves as they wash over your body from every angle.
There’s no doubt that KOAN Sound has become one of the leading innovators in the neuro-hop and glitch-hop movements. A constantly progressive perspective pits them on a musical path that consistently challenges the state of electronic music. “Strike” furthers that cause, resonating violent, jostling rhythms both percussion and production.
