HEXAGON is the new album on More Than Human by duo Stephen Wood and Scott Gubbels aka Kensington Gore. It’s an immersive 6-track album full of propulsive electronics, eerie sci-fi soundscapes and Kosmische chug.
For all it’s dark eldritch tones and dystopian leanings ‘Hexagon’ is a curiously optimistic record. There’s darkness in the anxious synth stabs for sure but also wistful melodies and subtle shades of instrumentation – which seems fitting as the band are named after the fake blood used in old Hammer horror films; it’s an intriguing combination. Like an ancient curse whispered in a space station.
“One of the most slowly riveting psych LPs we’ve spun in a while”
