Reliably informed

I can’t say I knew what to fully expect from Bill Gateshead’s newest song. I was familiar with the multi-instrumentalist’s previous releases; however, each project significantly varies itself in the sounds that it presents.

Bread Knife is no different, and to assign a label to this newest single would be to do the track a disservice. The drums and percussion are reminiscent of lo-fi hip-hop, the pads evoke the feeling of being lost in an electronic landscape, and the main synth progression is, dare I say, slightly leaning into bit music through its bubbly textures. It’s a thoroughly engaging listening experience, as throughout the track’s six minutes different samples and instruments weave in and out of the mix, with the drums carrying a great sense of momentum.
