If there are physical shadows to be found on Akranes’ EP of the same name, they’re the ones cast by lonely clouds that patrol otherwise bright skies. One such mass of precipitation follows Hebden Bridge native Liam Gaunt’s every move, coating his downbeat electro with a cool drizzle of effects and distortion. Presented as two ten-minute mixes, Shadows commences with ambient instrumentals, treated keys leading to clapping percussion and the woozy swagger of something like cloud rap.

Ooni Staerck’s gorgeous and frosty vocal ties it all together spectacularly. Amidst slo-mo beats and sub-bass wobble she hangs in a suspension of Gaunt’s creation, aquatic synths rushing from side to side as he lurches his vessel from dream-pop to trip hop, downbeat neo-R&B to warm glitch-step. There are shadows in all of us but, perhaps at a metaphysical level, we’re all destined to share the exact same ones.
