Iqbal's established sound is pleasant if nothing else, mixing glassy chords with warm basslines and rich synth sweeps. The rest of House Of Silk settles into a comfortable niche with those elements, serving as a summary of what we already know she can do. "Marble Air" and "Fear Of Silence" are among her plushest tracks. The former is particularly arresting, a twilight cruise full of gently caressing keyboards. They're both fine efforts, but predictable all the same.
House Of Silk's general flatness is underlined by the other two tracks. "Ecco Echo" is a slow broken-beat number that hobbles aimlessly, while "Underneath My Eyelids" is a pretty but unsubstantial lullaby to end the record. Iqbal's most prominent release so far largely reiterates her previous work, and when she sticks her neck out, the results are bad. Glimmers of brilliance shine through on the EP's best moments, but otherwise Iqbal's often exciting vision sounds clouded.
