LA duo Wildcat! Wildcat! have teamed up with rapper Wynne for their latest release which marks a surprise shift in tone from Jesse Carmichael and Jesse Taylor’s previous material.
Relentless still taps in to the duo’s earlier synthgaze sound by showering Taylor’s cascading vocals over Carmichael’s starry backdrop of electronics and percussion, but it’s also of a more decadent lyrical flavour and opens with a looping piano melody that acts like a sonic timebomb counting down to Wynne’s fast-lipped, tempo-altering rap which cuts in mid-way through proceedings and is backed by an array of atmospheric backing calls. From that point, Relentless hits it hard, the whirring beats and darkening euphoria jarring and amplifying until it all suddenly evaporates in to a spectacularly haunting outro.
