Gazelle Twin picked up The Quietus's album of the year award in 2014 with second album proper Unflesh - and the more we listen the more we agree. Unflesh was a splendidly unsettling listen, sparse electronic drums rattling through claustrophobic tunnels of synthetic collapse. Whether it was some hellish variant of hip hop, a modern industrial template, or the place that punk music went to live once more was uncertain. That is was very fucking good was certain.
After a feted performance at Convergence, we asked Gazelle Twin to offer us a selection of the tracks that are currently influencing her the most. Carter Tutti Void, Perc, and bursts of polymoog - it all makes a perfect, twisted sense.
Catch Gazelle Twin at Electrowerkz on 22nd April. Grab your tickets here.
Carter Tutti Void - V3 (Edit)
I was lucky to catch a performance of this at Incubate in 2014. It was transcendental. When I listen to Transverse, I visualise a sort of rampant industrial death machine bulldozing through deep space. Hard to describe without sounding off my head, but it’s deeply pleasurable.
