Inigo Kennedy – Surrender
- TOKEN 67
- EU - Original
Inigo Kennedy’s relationship with Token spans the label’s existence. He set the mood for what was to come from the very first release: A refined, yet courageous excursion, instantly recognisable as fitting with his own sonic identity, cultivated over many years of experience. This sound has become definitive in the context of Token’s output ever since. After his previous contribution earlier this year, a record thematically obsessed with a line of obscure interstellar clouds, he’s back with another double A-side for our next release.
Surrender begins with a textured awakening. The intermixture of slow swells and attentively-dashed accents in a range of timbres guides us blindly towards a shocking, strident interruption when the percussion is suddenly introduced with full and resolute force. As the track continues Kennedy makes sense of the unexpected jolt on our behalf, and the two opposing inclinations become one.
Castles In The Air retains a similar theme, with the kind of self-awareness that only a producer of Kennedy’s level of maturity can employ. Gloomy, lingering chords begin and then pause, forcing us to wait expectantly, with more than a moment lingering in reverb. When the full arrangement appears, it kicks at least twice as hard as the introduction could ever have prepared us for.
