Cuticle – Merciful Swound

There’s a lot of great stuff spilling out of the 100% Silk cup at the moment. We covered one of their early releases, the debut track from disco-shimmerist Ital, in our Warmth 3 post back in January and Estonian/Londoner Maria Minerva is  grabbing a lot of blog inches at the moment too. But our attention has been more recently captured by the brilliantly uncategorisable Cuticle.

Ranging from epic, retro-futuristic moodscapes to back-room, slo-mo love scenes, its tech thuds, glittering electronics and fibrous strands of stop-motion distortion create a wonderfully eclectic, genre-bashing sound. The kind of thing you’d expect really, coming from the incredible combined talent of Jeff Witscher (Rene Hell), Daren Ho (Driphouse) and Brendan O’Keefe (Nimby).

You can catch a glimpse of their greatness below, but for the full experience we’d highly recommend you purchase the EP.
