Hockeysmith – ‘But Blood’ EP

Hockeysmith - 'But Blood' EP


Sister duo skip through influences from Squarepusher to Savages

Sisters Annie and Georgie Hockeysmith’s first EP is as accomplished as it is encyclopedic. Skipping from ambient to banging without warning, it encompasses most of the moodier fringes of experimental music’s output over the past twenty years. Its four short tracks reference everyone from Squarepusher to James Blake via Mogwai and Savages. On the vast ‘Hesitate’, the duo’s hypnotic offerings come with unsettling sisterly harmonies while stretched out glitches and melodic global grooves add weight to the airy ‘Meanwhile’. Expect something even more comprehensive from their full-length debut album.
