Cobalt Rabbit & Fox Machine Gun :: Luminance EP (Insight Music)

Luminance drips with casual, effective, and brightly detailed electronic sound design.

Cobalt Rabbit & Fox Machine Gun join forces to elicit a calm organic-electronic view from a far away place on Luminance. Piano extracts on “Spire” featuring Michael FK is an emotional whirlwind, its serenity​ displaced by gaseous sound design, eventual beat slicing, and slithering ninja bass. “Kaori” delivers on familiar ground, violins allow for a progression of fluid percussion and dynamic rhythmic maneuvering. “Dream Distance” falls into more tranquil waters—an ebb and flow that distorts low-end emissions and a chilled gravity pulse. The title-track flickers about in simmering bass throttles, yet it creates a vast soundscape overflowing with field recordings, birds chirping happily, guitar strings lightly plucked, and a prevailing clip-hop vibe. Luminance drips with casual, effective, and brightly detailed electronic sound design. Its breather piece “Comfort” crafts an introspective synopsis sans percussion—a two minute massage for the senses.

Luminance is available on Insight Music.
