Review of “Human Tree” EP

Some love for Mist Giant’s first EP


Mist Giant – Human Tree EP

Borrowing textures like Explosions in the Sky’s deep bowed guitar ring and incorporating programmed beats with atmospheric synthesizer, Mist Giant come across as a slightly more emo version of Kieren Hebden (the Fourtet guy)’s early band, Fridge. The music is dark and pulsing, veering between emotional laments, slowcore builds, darkwave dirging and noise freakouts with ease. With prominent vocals that register halfway between a croon and a lament, these three dense songs cry out for multiple listens.
