#354: Acre Tarn - Clasp & Shake (EP review)

Acre Tarn – Clasp & Shake (Tri-Tone)


September 29 2014

Rising from the ashes of Manchester based Letter To Fiesta, ambient electro duo Acre Tarn release their debut EP Clasp & Shake Louder Than War’s Dave Beech reviews.

“The silence is deafening” proclaim Acre Tarn on the second track of their debut EP Clasp & Shake, before the lyrics stop for a moment and the dull bass throb proceeds to carry the track forward in a somewhat typical move from the band, whose debut is an effortless affair of dark narratives, staccato vocal melodies and twisting soundscapes that keep everything fresh throughout the course of the record.
