New Metome: “Triple X”

In which an artist who often felt like he was bouncing off of rubber walls makes a song that feels like quicksand. Osaka’s Metome spent the first half of 2015 exploring helium-pumped sounds, but in recent times has moved in a darker, more dense direction. “Triple X” isn’t far removed from something like “Feather,” as both sound claustrophobic, but “Triple X” comes off as more of a slow crush than a hyperactive pounding. It is slow to unfold, and has more in common with the music Eadonmm makes than what he was doing last year. Listen above.
