Apop have always been a huge favourite of the industrial and Goth electronic music scene and they once again return with an EP indicating that direction the band intends to head towards.
The opening track 'Soma Coma' is one that I have had stuck in my head a lot and been humming to myself daily with its upbeat easy listening and catchy lyrical hooks. There are hints of Human League and contrasting lyrics to the melody in the same way 'pumped up kicks' lays itself out.
However the rest of the EP is very different to what you would normally expect from 'Apoptygma Berzerk'. There is a spooky atmospheric track in the form of Jennifer Corvino and a 4am nightclub foot stomper in the way of the 'A battle for the crown' remix.'
The track 'Nearest' that has been played live for the past three years is finally available on this EP as well.
The rest of the EP heads in experimental and easy listening directions that may not be to everyone's tastes but are none the less worth checking out.
