A Strangely Isolated Place:

"Longtime friends and frequent collaborators Luke Entelis (Viul) and Thomas Meluch (Benoît Pioulard) combine their enchanting textures reflecting on a time spent in lockdown, for A Strangely Isolated Place.

"Konec" is Czech for "end," and a nod to the uncertainty of Luke and Thomas' home city of New York amidst the pandemic. Birthed from Luke's short synth sketches, the two friends further collaborated in isolation to create a series of strangely beautiful interludes - a sense of vitality breaking through the immediate surrounding dread.

Whilst many of the tracks expand far beyond what a short interlude may dictate, Konec builds on this concept through some of the most thought-provoking loops the pair have created over their many combined years producing.

With an immediate arresting aesthetic, grounded in saturation, decay and distortion, tracks such as 'Returning Clear Voice' or 'Flaxen' reflect some of the duo's more textured work - a hazy mist of life unknown in a city's uncharted times. engrossing moments come with a confident posture, such as the unforgettable bellowing of 'Catalune' or 'Construction Worker Smoke Cycle' or the swirling, haunting 'Canon'.

The variation in minute, samples and instrumentation throughout the album cannot be understated amongst its hazy aesthetic and ominous poignancy. It's one thing to notice the details, but another to unstick the melodies from the closing credits of a dystopian city's downfall, from the forefront of your mind."
