A great new release from An on Bast from Poznan, Poland. "Words Are Dead" continues the journey into delicate synthetic music, first heard on "Welcome Scissors". Complex rhythms, haunting melodies and a free abstract looseness to the tracks make this a sophisticated and seductive combination.
"Crafting and creating her own hermetically sealed IDM playground Suda's application for spatial compositions is breathtaking"
"Think we need to hear more - the hunt for those full length releases has begun in earnest"
"seven adventurous pieces of varying character where micro-melodies and elements (glitchy guitar fragments, arcade squiggles, scurrying beats, shimmering tones, sliced and diced voices) weave themselves into complex, multi-tiered arrangements."

"While there's certainly plenty of 'delicate synthetic music' on offer amongst Words Are Dead's seven tracks, the flexing, dancefloor-inspired rhythms are never really too far from the surface, and certainly emerge explicitly on strong moments such as 'Sth Important's juddering fusion of headstrong, hiphop-informed beat programming, eerie cut-up vocal samples and contemplative analogue synth tones. Well worth investigating"

"seductive and sophisticated sound design and a satisfying sense of momentum"
"Abstract, yet melodic electronic music with organic influences and a keen ear for interesting compositions. "
"This kept me hooked from beginning to end and I'd suggest that this is a release you should definitely check out immediately. Lovely stuff."
"anna suda (the brains behind an on bast) has a firm control over detailed texture and ear pleasing harmony when crafting her sonic creations."
