A HTRK member goes solo with an eerie new EP.
But this record is warmer. And funnier. Standish's vocals are brought way up in the mix so you can hear her half-sung thoughts on love, self-sabotage and obsession with a new clarity (15 years ago, they were usually concealed by shrieking feedback and distortion. In the meantime, themes of self-care, metaphysics and the occult have wound tighter around HTRK's catalogue. The title of "Scorpio Rises Again," the lead single and EP highlight, makes that clear. It closes Super Natural with an eerie glide through sounds of finger-clicking and whistling. It's a strong expression of Standish's offbeat sensibility that suggests more exciting new productions are to come.
