Acquiesce, the debut EP from San Ré, is a richly textured and angsty exploration of “relinquishing control in an absurd cosmos where chaos reigns supreme.” Acquiesce leads off with Also Surreal, a raw and aggressive industrial EBM / techno track, followed by Lunar FOB, which imagines a near future in which Earth’s moon is being colonized by various nations, all competing for control of the surface, strategic locations and resources. The third track, Draw Me a Cat, is a lament for a lost friend, for lost childhood friendships and for their fading memories, and is followed by Flutter, a richly textured, contemplative track with undulating synth bass beneath syncopated beats and percussion. Acquiesce is concluded by Turtle Hill, a sentimental and nostalgic homage to a particular space and time of transformational physical and spiritual healing, and rebirth.
Releases 1 October 2021. Acquiesce will be available for streaming, digital download, and on limited edition cassette tape, each with one of three limited edition j-card interior artwork variations, two limited edition photo prints and handmade packaging. Only 10 copies available. Cassette tape includes Sequin Select as a bonus track.
