True Mother’s next release comes from Potions, aka Chris Doria – one half of the production duo behind Jaded Lover. The At The Dunes EP consists of four original tracks, two vocal versions, and one additional remix. Samples of lonely maritime gales usher in the title track, which pits detuned pads against bass and guitar with a soft, seaside lilt. “Call Of The City” slightly picks up the pace and unfurls into an infectious, head-nodding and toe-tapping, synth-pop instrumental. Third track, the hilariously titled “Lawn Mowers At Night,” draws heavily on Potions’ sombre guitar tones over a bed of electronics while “A Familiar Friend” is a slow burner that layers up quite nicely.
Such Pretty Losers, another group from the True Mother roost, lend their vocal stylings to “Lawnmowers At Night” and “Call Of The City” while staying true to Potions’ aesthetic. Finally Sean Malloy’s take on “A Familiar Friend” brings it firmly into the rock realm with fuzzed out bass and full drum-kit. The eclecticism at play on the At The Dunes EP is daring and impressive, and raises the bar for the label as its most complex release to date.
