labyrinth ear

For something shrouded in such fragile sparse minimalism on initial listens there’s a deceptive busyness afoot. Prized from their debut full length ‘the orchid room’ Labyrinth Ear’s latest single ’urchin’ is ghosted in a spectral half light that orbits the sound worlds of both Fever Ray and Grimes, fuse into that the subtle shimmer of oriental motifs and the delicate distress opine of celestial love notes sighing through astral apertures and slowly but surely the emergence of an ethereal snake charm rises into view inviting you to scratch a little deeper under its frosted top skin to be lulled to the sound of no ceremony at folly in the noir folds of the neighbourhood’s darkened playground. Gemlike.
