Warm and crackling reverberations coupled with bassy thuds transport one to an almost guitarless, shoegazy planet on this self-titled EP. Inspired by the likes of Dntel and MBV, Parisian brainchild Cyril Rampal barely wets the listener’s whistle when his third and final track comes to an end. Standout tune “Reverse” clocks in at a miniscule 1:36, yet makes up for its length with larger than life booms, synthesized buzzy beats and a bit of guitar (the only track with strings).
This glorious 7 minute taste of what Black Polygons should certainly continue developing is available for free here via Bandcamp. Word has it that a 15-ish track, full-length is in the works. It’s a slow process, however, as this gentleman is a one-man show. More anon…hopefully.
