'Matter Of Time' is an eerie and almost industrially cold synth-based track that contains elements of Depeche Mode, Portishead and Cocteau Twins, in that it has a mystery, a dreamy quality but also a somewhat disturbed atmosphere. The beats are glitchy and varied rather than settled, and the same goes for the various synth sounds that are used. On the surface it appears to be quite a straightforward darkwave track, but each listen reveals something else, and you soon discover that there's much more going on here than meets the eye. Being the time of year in which we're saturated by often sickly summer pop songs, this menacing beast could be the perfect antidote.
