It's Friday morning on the second week of December, which for a lot of young people, means the end of the treacherous week-long journey known as finals week. In keeping with the nervous scatter that begins to be the brains of college students, Boxcutter has managed to come out with a fast-bpm and experimenting with the uptempo world.
What results is a majestic exploration of sounds that go perfectly in line with Cosmic Bridge, the label this has been released under. While I joke about finals week, the track we've premiered today, "Dream Gator (With Ken & Ryu)" is a combination of frantic highs and melodic lows that keep the listener intertwined with the track the entire time. Fast paced songs can often be a recipe for disaster, but Boxcutter managed to use just the right ingredients to come up with this gem.
The Gnosis EP, which features this track and five others, will be out December 16th.
