“Residual Forms” reviewed by Blackaudio

This 20 minute one-track EP is available only on Digital Download (unfortunately for the collectors out there); with Adkins thematically covering the notion of ‘drift’ and a lone figure wandering round a city, locked in their own world. ‘Residual Forms’ is a beautiful release; with captivating drones and harmonies that slide and weave gently together […]

“Residual Forms” reviewed by Carnage
