Review by: Justyn Brodsky
A record that is musically blissful and emotionally visceral, we get a vast array of beautiful moods and landscapes from artist/producer Peltier‘s newest EP, Duality.
From behind the creative mind of a producer lies a signature sound and a stylistic niche. Combine this with the artistic merit of that same producer, and we have Duality. Comprised of 3 tracks that diligently explore musical emotions and a visual journey into the audio realm.
The first track, “That Spot”, demonstrates the signature touches and vibes that play out through the duration of each track. A perfect introductory tale of the digital world of electronic and EDM that Peltier creates. One thing that is most notable about this track is the effectiveness it has as an instrumental track. The song starts out subtle and ominous, and grasps onto many different layers and components as the song plays out. It’s a more laid back and anthemic beat that heavily expresses moods through the crafted melodies that overlay the song.
Next number, “Sensible Touch”, sticks to a similar recipe as its predecessor, but begins to explore different angles in both writing and production sequences. The synths in both tracks parallel each other beautifully, showcasing the brilliant melody choices Peltier utilizes throughout his song structures. This song is especially melodic in the same way, and continues to bring out the signature sound this EP resonates with.
The final track, “Harpoon”, is more rhythmic and energetic, but still maintains the ambience and textures that have been heard throughout the last two tracks. This song definitely ties the tracks together, almost the same way a trilogy does to films. It’s a resolution to the three songs, and a track that really brings Peltier‘s craft to the forefront in whole. The production quality is very relevant, consistent, and puts a modern visual bliss to audio recording and instrumental songwriting.
These are songs for the creative mind, an EP that delves deep beyond the surface of your emotions, and something you can listen to and relate with when you truly take them in. Peltier‘s Duality is anything but ordinary, and will keep you fascinated on what his future prospects may hold. You’ll also be enticed to look more into his background and prior releases. It’s a record that truly puts electronic music into the emotional realm.
