Below is a commentary by the label.

"Pentu's latest is a series of jump-cut musical moments inspired by witnessing the fractured tensions and new possibilities that arise when a laptop breaks down at a gig, not to mention the void left by the abrupt end of a relationship. Collected together on And I Saw My Devil And I Saw My Deep Blue Sea, the 15 tracks see the London-based producers continue to aggressively stray from the soundscapes and song structures that previously dominated their work. These disjointed tracks jump from hyper instrumentals to beautifully deconstructed YouTube samples, suddenly switching to silence or slipping into unpredictable sidebars. Though Pentu says he "wrote it emotionally intuitively," the record is music for the modern mind of infinite scrolling, "navigating a world with the fractured, interrupted emotional surrealities of social media."

The sudden silences, drones and interruptions may seem less surprising than Metal & Lamp's guitar-driven textures. The result is a collage that captures not just the end of a relationship, but the disorganized feeling of simply navigating the online mediascape. "I realized that the constant interruption of emptiness and silence, the phone, was both a source of depression (reliving memories, dating apps) and a way out of depression (making new friends, distraction, also dating apps)," says Pentu.

Pentu's attempt to overcome content overload by actively curbing his laptop-guitar-synth setup does little to narrow the scope of the album's sonic palette. The YouTube blog sample (from a video with few views) is an attempt to recontextualize and dramatize material that would otherwise disappear from the internet, adding a staccato moment of reality to Pentu's beautifully haunting album, a paean to overstimulation.

Mappa:

"Inspired by witnessing the broken tension and renewed possibilities of a laptop breaking down at a gig – not to mention the void left behind by the sudden end of a relationship – Pentu's latest release is a jump-cut menagerie of musical moments. Sewn together into 'And I Saw My Devil And I Saw My Deep Blue Sea', these fifteen tracks continue the London-based producer's active departure from the soundscapes and song structures that dominated their previous writing style. These disparate pieces slice themselves off into sudden silence, or veer into unpredictable sidebars, hopping from hyperactive instrumentals to beautifully deconstructed YouTube samples. Described by Pentu as “emotionally intuitive to write”, this is music by and for the endlessly scrolling modern mind – “navigating the world alongside the splintered, interruptive emotional hyper realities of social media.”

The sudden silences, drones, and interruptions are perhaps less surprising than the guitar-based textures of metal and shoegaze woven into several vital passages by Pentu. The result is a collage that encapsulates the erratic feeling, not only of a relationship's end, but simply of navigating online mediascapes.”I found myself realising that my phone, the constant interrupter of nothingness and silence, was both a cause of depression (reliving memories, dating apps) and a relief from it (creating new friendships, distractions, also dating apps)”, says Pentu.

Pentu's attempt to overcome content overload by actively curbing his laptop-guitar-synth setup does little to reduce the scope of this album's sonic palette. YouTube vlog samples (from videos with next-to-no views) are an attempt to recontextualise and dramatise material that “would have otherwise been throwaway moments lost in the internet”, adding staccato moments of reality to Pentu's beautiful and jarring album-length punch to overstimulation.
