Sunday Service

oa1

The mysterious Old Apparatus round off an impressive year with a fourth release through their own Sullen Tone label. ‘Harem’ marks the third in a trilogy of EP’s from individual members of the East London collective and follows a similar trajectory of leaden and fractured, machine tooled, ambient-industrial atmosphere to the previous output, but the deeply immersive cinematic quality goes a bit deeper and darker over four tracks that have been described as ‘probably the most haunted of the records they’ve done’. Ranging from the tribal rhythms of ‘Dourado’ and the John Carpenter-esque ‘Sunday Service’ featuring vocals from Paperdoll House, through to the heavy pressure of ‘Octofish’ and the haunted tones of ‘Mernom’ that can be heard in this Nic Hamilton directed video, it’s a fitting closure for some of the most engaging music out there at the moment.
