*Tri Angle is very excited to be releasing 'Harbored Mantras', the debut album by San Franciscan duo Water Borders.
*At Tri Angle we always try to avoid making any grand, sweeping statements about the music we release, but on this
occassion we feel very confident in saying 'Harbored Mantras' sounds like nothing else you'll hear all year.
*Primarily inspired by their lifelong passion for 80s industrial legends Coil and the kind of underground UK dance
productions often heard on Rinse FM, ‚Harbored Mantras' is a dense and dizzying soundworld; a dank, tribal and often
disorientating dance record which as the two piece state was intended to be ‚“ a coalescence of digital and analog
sounds and textures“.
*As well as looking to Coil and the UK dance scene for inspiration Harbored Mantras also incorporates a vast array of
Water Border's influences including Gamelan rhythms, proto techno, Scott Walker, African drum patterns, dub, Popul
Vuh and Glasser, who actually designed the artwork for the album.
