Anna Meredith
What’s the product of a musician who grows up in a generation whose musical zeitgeist could be described as bombastic, whose peers are prone to asking “where’s the drop?” and who are winning the loudness war by mass adoption of soul-crushing non-dynamic chart dance? What’s the product of someone versed in electro/acoustic composition but equally informed by popular culture? Anna Meredith’s ‘Nautilus’ sounds like that juxtaposition. Like the razor-wire claustrophobic strings of Justice’s ‘Stress’, the song’s galloping cascading horns provide the repetition. But it’s not utilitarian or mechanical, soul drips from its crevasses, as does severe bombast. Then three minutes in, a big beat drops following a LFO-synth into battle and were off. Exuberant!
