The Romanian trio of Livio, Roby and George G first performed under the Premiesku moniker in 2009. After a period of inconsistent output, the trio look now to have focussed their attentions more than ever on the project. They follow up their “More 4” EP on Apollonia with “Aproape”, an 8-track EP returning to Loco Dice’s Desolat imprint which marks a surge in recent activity for the triple act. Based on the evidence of this latest release, though, that recent activity will only increase their stock further.
The 8 tracks of Aproape are split in half over vinyl and digital formats. Opener Abduction hits the ground running with aquatic sounds from a harp-like instrument gliding up and down in the background while piano cluster chords fill in the gaps. The cut up vocal acts as much as punctuation as the percussion itself, which when taken all together creates a very intricate texture.
