Mathematics launches their new label Social Studies with this well-calculated release. “Here and Now” kickstarts with a twisting electro synth-line and echoing vocal snippets before dropping in with chopped-up amen breaks, a deep rolling bassline, piano stabs and all the proper elements that we’ve grown to expect from this trio. The flipside, “Backdraft,” comes even stronger, centered around a squelching synth alongside a wobbly bassline, handclaps and chiming keys. An auspicious start from a promising new label.
