Listening through ‘Make A Move EP’ it is easy to identify the producers personal sound. It is well-crafted, dramaturgically smooth and personally intimate. This is where I find the contradiction. The music is self-conscious and confident, but the lyrics of the title track says ”I saw you last week, same place same time, but I didn´t make a move”. As Swedish anxiety meet the decisiveness of Berlin and Watergate, La Fleur turns it into two sides of the same coin in a very conceptual and yet personal way.
The second track, ’Just In Time’ is a slow-churning, but nevertheless soul-nudging, piece of music. It seamlessly balances the wash of lush pads as it canvases a rolling and unrelenting bassline as a looping female vocal circles the room slowly rearing itself and then quickly hiding again.
The final track, ’Result’, connects the dots and brings the organic vibe of natural drums as a cosmic wind sweeps the dense, repetitive bassline. ’Result’ is right where I want it to be, in the hard reached canyons in the borderlands of organic and, in this case, woman-made soundscape.
