The latest from Terrain Ahead co-founder IVVVO, Theories Of Anxiety does what it proclaims on the tin. Dream sequences and snatched glimpses of melody swoop in and out of earshot whilst a warped techno template holds the wayward compositions together. Dark and distant sounds from just beyond the dancefloor. Out on vinyl 12” from Danse Noire.

7/10 Clinton Staff review, 27 April 2016

On the opening track-ette here ‘Closer’, IVVVO explain in sound what it is like to be on the wrong night bus heading into parts of London that humans daren’t tread. The eerie late night beats of ‘Redux’ suggest a Burial gone wrong. This won’t soothe you on your suburban settees but will terrify you so much you’ll close the curtains.

I am absolutely sure the screeched voice is the same one from Happy Mondays ‘Wrote For Luck’ but in this context it is desperate. This generous six tracker displays all the moods from disconcerting to fear to utter terror. The pulsing, underwater samples are slathered with repeated vocal snippets until you get to ‘Fear‘ where from then on everything gets squeaky on the synth front. I preferred the murky privet hedge by lamplight discotheque of the A side but it’s a chilling ride throughout.
