Forever an irrepressible energy struggling to break free, latest single Switch the Tale (feat. Historacle) (prod. Herman Bloom) from Dashwuud treads the delicate boundary between surreal and relatable listening yet again in lines like “flick the switch” and “switch the tale” referencing an ongoing grappling with contemporary life. This time accompanied by the low-end rapidfire delivery of guest feature Historacle, Dashwuud’s distinctive raw emotion is mirrored in the glitchy heat-mass of a soundscape offered by Herman Bloom in his debut production credit while scattered instrumental flourishes from Penguin Smalls come across as much-needed glimpses of blue skies in this rather bleak urban jungle.
Ever unpredictable in whatever sonic environment they may land in next, Dashwuud and their cohort of jilted societal observers deliver yet another impressively unique take on underground music in the broadest sense.
