The Electric Nature unveils 'Lungrakes' / 'Squorks'

Posted By on Tue, Jul 24, 2012 at 12:14 PM

Michael Potter, AKA the Electric Nature, released a two-song digital single this week, showing off a couple of numbers he recorded over the last few months. “Lungrakes” is something of a departure from EN’s typically heady atmospheric trips. It’s a fiery journey, but a drone metal dirge such as this isn’t really a giant leap from the sonic blueprints he’s laid out for the project. It’s certainly no less psychedelic, just bigger, and less abstract than what we're used to hearing from his neck of the woods.

The second song, “Squorks,” is essentially a segment of droning guitar feedback that’s been heavily processed, culminating in a natural bridge back to familiar aural terrain. Putting sound under the microscope in such a way and letting those microtones and gorgeous aural imperfections shine is what the Electric Nature does best. And while his M.O. has been established, pairing “Lungrakes” and Squorks” together hints that there’s more in Potter’s cannon than blissful dreamscapes.
