Com Truise - 'Wave 1 EP'
Plenty of impressive sci-fi synth sounds, but the New Jersey producer's latest never settles into a proper groove
Sadly, ‘Wave 1’ is a more disjointed, disorienting listen. VHS-quality dubstep (‘Mind’) collides with robo-pop ballads (‘Declination’), but Haley’s lush synth washes are all too often interrupted by flickering glitches and abrasive drum claps, and the one thing that does seem truly alien to this record is a steady groove.
