Closing out the EP, final opus ‘Alive’ leans into a world of warping textures and collapsible beats, serving as a cathartic end to the journey that is the “Unbleach” EP. Rife with percussive elements and lively vocal cuts, the track borrows inspiration from UK Garage and 2step, as well as from IDM and pop in the broadest sense. An energy booster with multiple unmistakably English references, ‘Alive’ is the result of a fantasy encounter between Sault, Aphex Twin and Overmono.
