Robot Push Key releases Chrysalis

The combination of which creates a lovely echoey chamber of sound that clangs and rattles along like an old freight train.

Stockholm based electronic artist Robot Push Key has released Chrysalis. The single is full of old school blip bloppery, static and crunchiness. The combination of which creates a lovely echoey chamber of sound that clangs and rattles along like an old freight train. Cranking up the anti, distorted synths are added to the mix bringing a new level of texture to the chaos. This might sound like there is nothing holding the piece together but the simple yet solid bass lines and drums keep the whole thing pounding along steady and strong. Like all good singles there are two extra tracks that can be seen in the traditional sense as B sides. The first Stereocilia offers up a similar style and quirkiness as Chrysalis but with a little more emphasis on the beat and bass line. Ending the single with Sacred Geometry we are thrust into an abstract broken down version of the sound theme. This is a glorious derailment of the whole three tracks with moments of clarity ending in an abrupt meltdown.

Robot Push Key brings together wonderful chaos and old school sounds solidly underpinned with beats and bass lines. Although Chrysalis offers no vocals, fans of Throbbing Gristle and the like would certainly get some pleasure out this wonderful single.

If Chrysalis is anything to go by, I absolutely can't wait for the full album release.

As with most music these days, Chrysalis is available through almost all major streaming services. Check it out on Band Camp
