The three B-side tracks move away from the dancefloor with less noticeable beats, crafted in a classic shimmering Kompakt pop ambient style. “Durance” slowly moves forward with a slightly shuffling rhythm as a gleaming crystalline chime echoes in and out. A lovely tinkling melody cycles around and around “Missing” as synths sigh underneath and the beat gently sways from side to side. Closing track “Melanie” is beautiful and haunting at the same time, featuring elegant yet mysterious piano loops that skip up and down the register, accompanied by glittering yet icy chimes and a simple yet somber bassline. All three tracks are built to charm and beguile, and certainly do the job.
For those fond of Kompakt’s gauzy romantic side, “Behind This Silence” is highly recommended.
