Sloh | New EP from il:lo, out Dec. 6, 2019 via Future Archive Recordings.
Sloh is il:lo’s fourth EP. Keeping in tune with their previous EP, their sound is a meeting of acoustic and synthetic instruments. Thereby mallets and brass converse with moogs and Junos. In SLOH, the production is designed as more electronic but still organic.
The symbiosis between heavy bass notes and atmospheric pads reminds the listener of one between the body and the soul. The building heading into the sky of the cover illustrates this idea. In songs such as the first single Niyati, the deep bass fixes the feet to the ground while the heady melody arouses the soul.
Sloh is a new musical road where il:lo wants to invite the listener . A journey to feel new emotions. Some parts of this road are peaceful (Alma) while others have to be climbed to reach the top and discover new places (a.me
, Sloh) and let go. At the end of the journey the listener is invited to walk alongside the Austrian river of Ybbs, and to conclude the trip with a last (progressive) ascent (Cami).
