Manchester six-piece Oklo are set to release their debut EP, ‘International Waters’, on 3 Apr. Following on from ‘I Climatize’ last month, the second track to be released from the record, ‘Acedia’, is now online.

On the surface, ‘I Climatize’ is a slow-moving track, although it has a rapidly shifting undercurrent that works to disorientate and destabilise the listener. The song is a take on climate change, say the band, “a literal reflection on our surroundings morphing at a rapid pace”. ‘Acedia’, meanwhile, is a bit more up front with its pacing – quick, nervous percussion drives the track forward.

With three-fifths of the EP still to be revealed, the band’s music is already bursting with ideas, unexpected moves and a refreshing approach to composition and production.
