Reliably informed

The Incognitos’ EP Let Go is stuffed with textured sonic environments and catchy guitar riffs, keeping the listener on their toes constantly with its ever-shifting genres.

The track Don’t Let Go includes subtle additions in the mix, such as a flute, making for a jovial atmosphere. In contrast, the track Money features a harsher, more hard rock or post-punk inspired sound and a distortion which also features heavily on Top Banana, albeit with a more dance-inspired drum pattern and minimal vocals. Top Banana is the standout of the EP for me, as the lack of lyrics let the intricacies of the instrumental flourish.

Despite it being a valiant effort, the EP’s collage-esque soundscape results in a mixed up release, which does little to reveal the band’s motives.
