REVIEW: Anden - Nightwalks EP out on Colorize / Enhanced Music

Increasingly popular US duo Anden bring their expansive sound to Colorize in the mesmerising introductory extended play, 'Nightwalks'.

Opening with the mysterious 'I Never Asked You What You Did', Anden's first outing on Colorize brings the New York-based duo's eccentric, brilliant instrument lead sound in a powerful, vocal-lead masterpiece.

Continuing with the sublime 'Ringley', Anden once again display their impressive touch with a sensual, atmospheric journey through percussive rises, rippling lows and crisp chordplay.

Closing their first Colorize EP with 'Sorensen', Anden's tough, Proggy side shines through with an encompassing bass-heavy production that retains their distinctive instrument-lead approach with growling chord hits.

Delivering one seriously tight debut EP to Colorize, Anden bring the label's year to a subtle close with a dose of utter brilliance in the 'Nightwalks' EP.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Anden have established themselves as one of the coolest duos in the deep electronic house with trancy touches style of music and the 3 tracks included on the Nightwalks EP testify how talented these two brothers are. I Never Asked You What You Did: warm and tender piano chords, melancholic tones, deep pulsating basslines, vintage synths and cinematic strings building the brilliant sonic scenery. Ringley: Instrumental complex creative deep house beauty with distorted warped synths and experimental attitude building tension with hypnotic grooves and  suspenseful strings. Finally Sorensen is smooth optimistic groovy production with dark basslines, danceable grooves and inspirational spoken vocal sample that offer some rays of hope to welcome the new year with guitar like synths and laid back lazy attitude. #PureGold Love IT  [/content]
