In the first of three EPs for Warm collective's own label, Face & Heel are a Cardiff based duo settled in an interesting midway point between indie pop and electronica that behaves like techno while seemingly fitting in with the more emotional end of the dubstep aftermath. On "No Stars" the pitched-up vocals duel with rounded bass pressure and a gossamer beat while the main melodic content comes on thick and dramatic. "One Hundred Years Deep" takes a more polite stance as (presumably) Sinead McMillan's vocals come through clean and untreated while the track operates in a similar headspace to Clams Casino.
