With a pair of original tracks, Full Gloom offers two different but related sounds. The title cut's mood isn't far from an artist like Sampha, who once released a single with SBTRKT on Ramp. But its slow pace veers less towards soul than a classic era of jazzy vocal pop, with spare beats and strings under a male-and-female duet. "16 Bits," on the other hand, has an upbeat, chiptune-esque rhythm that nods to the club as Trim drops verses. It's an interesting touch that the chorus is essentially a looped echo of Trim's opening line buried quietly in the mix.
The Drones Club remix of "Full Gloom" meanders between experimental and club tropes, but it's the short, stripped-down reprise with strings and voice that feels the meatiest. The sweet female vocal and the romantic pop arrangement may be anachronistic, but that's probably what makes it intriguing.
