worriedaboutsatan 'Shift' 12" EP
Recorded over two semi-improvised sessions in worriedaboutsatan’s rural Yorkshire studio, Shift represents the first recorded output from the duo since 2016’s critically acclaimed ‘Blank Tape’ album.
The two longform parts that make up Shift were recorded in one take, inspired by a desire to create something from nothing, and not over-thinking what felt immediate. Drone heavy and based around slowly unfurling beds of sound, Shift sees the band step back from the rhythmic and intense techno-heavy sound explored on Blank Tape, and has more in common with their soundtrack work, such as the creeping atmospheres they contributed to Adam Curtis’ Hypernormalisation film.
