Phthalo is a very chill experience, with vocals awash in cascading waves of electronic sound. My favorite track here is “Tosmacco” which (alongside “Smash Adams”) is one of the more hard-hitting tracks on offer. A consistent, excellent release from LKOY.
Words from the artist:
“Phthalo was recorded in tandem with Skullduggery, countering the latter’s saturated acoustics with digital synths and video game soundfonts. Being my first earnest attempt at vocals over non-guitar music, they were performed and mixed more as a background accompaniment. The cover artwork was illustrated by Quianna Fick, who also contributed vocals to the song ‘Lead Zeppelin’.”
