Built on an urge to explore the product of a group of musicians responding to each other’s actions without too many constraints, and written whilst tinkering with the vast swathes of equipment at Abbey Road, ‘Entanglement’ is clearly a rather special endeavour for an artist who’s already had plenty of highs. Crafted over two years and ultimately recorded in Berlin, the album is a fascinating set featuring the melding of conventional piano and strings and rather more curious tape effects, modular synths and electronic burbles. There is a genuine darkness pervading this record that is simultaneously chilling and indescribably moreish. As much as this collection of instruments can so often deliver the hair-raising tricks we expect, these pieces feel more resonant, more entrenched. The surface level thrills are there, but the impact lingers. The emotional clout of this music is quite staggering and, even after a dozen listens, it consistently has the capacity to genuinely manipulate your mood.
