Production duo Animal Hack have just released their latest EP, ‘Gift’, pulling together the last six months or so of their output. A shift from last summer’s ‘Boy’ EP, it drives the volume right into the red for large sections, although is not without moments of subtlety.

Opening track ‘Body’ sets things off in furniture-rattling form, before giving way to ‘Letter’, which balances overdriven drums and synths with intricate guitar work. A (slightly) lighter sound comes on ‘WIMM?’, which leaves space to ponder the unusual vocal sample it employs. Meanwhile, ‘Plastic Night’ really does shift things down a gear, coming as a welcome respite at the EP draws to a close.

Listen to ‘Body’ here.
