The fourth release on André Hommen's These Eyes imprint is coming from Tlak, the alter ego of Croatian-born and Danish-based Denis Horvat.
Horvat made a lot noise over the last few months with releases on labels such as Innervisions, Afterlife, Exit Strategy, Sum Over Histories and more. His studio set up is stacked with analogue gear, resulting in what he describes as the "synthesizer techno" he makes. But - you will hear a difference between 'Denis Horvat' and 'Tlak' productions - as that's why he created his second alias.
EP's Title track 'Dispossessed' was first featured in Tim Sweeney's legendary Beats In Space show, where André Hommen did a guest-mix in August 2016. Since then, 'Dispossessed' received a massive "Track ID?"-explosion on social media and even though it's a pretty dark production, it takes you on a special journey throughout the track with several electronic elements, where some might appear surprisingly. B-side Cristal is lightening it up again, which makes it to a matching EP.
"Don’t Shy Away" maintains the core sound of the dream pop band's debut, with Emily Cross’s haunted vocals hovering throughout understated instrumental landscapes Bandcamp Album of the Day Oct 27, 2020
