Reliably informed

Words Halfway is an eerie electronic remix of the ambient synthtronica act Summer Night Air’s track by Cathode (aka Steve Jefferis, one half of Warm Digits) which seemingly personifies a dystopian dream. The song exemplifies their soft yet mechanical sound which is subdued yet elevating, harnessing the rhythm and distortion of electro music.

The remix – which also marks Cathode’s first release since 2010, and is taken from a remix album release due in October on Cruel Nature Records – can be considered to be almost other-worldly, with their ringing keys conveying an emerging sense of fragile hope, re-enforced through the almost disembodied vocals from the Cornshed Sisters’ Jennie Brewis which, coupled with lulling rhythmic beats, render the track as the epitome of relaxation and calm.
