Recently found laying down exquisite jams for HNYTRX, Skylax and others, Octo Octa is continuing her productive run of 2017 with this refined slice of business for Love Notes. "Eyes Low" is a stirring melting pot of styles, using a bumping house groove as a basis for adventurous string stabs, rolling percussion and lots more that comes on with a Herbert-esque touch of finesse. "Touch Formation" takes a more intimate approach, using warm acidic bass and lingering chords to set up a vintage slice of Heard inspired house music. "I Feel" maintains the introspective flavour of the B-side with more poignant keys and an understated beat, making this a well-rounded EP for the summer months.
