The title track “Bleak” embodies that same “happysad” feel described by Löffler, with warm-sounding, tic-tock beats, crackling background atmospherics and echoing vocals. Minimal, serene and intricate, “Bleak” is a dance floor cut that’s designed to keep the floor moving in the early hours or for walking alone in a snowy forest at dusk.
If the “Bleak” EP were a landscape, Davis' B-Side “Empathy” would be the spacious swath of winter sky embracing the frozen earth. At once somber and uplifting, with airy tones and a gentle yet driving rhythm, “Empathy” takes the listener on a naturalistic ambient journey to the far-away reaches of sound.
