Albert Swarm "Familialities"

Let us introduce you to Albert Swarm, the anonymous Finnish-born producer behind the next release for Brooklyn's fledgling Ceremony imprint. His Held EP is a five-song record scheduled to drop on August 23, from which this deeply emotive cut is taken. "Familialities" is full of airy atmospheres, crunchy rhythms, and loose melodies that all ebb and flow with a certain understated grace. At times it reminds us distinctly of the gorgeous new tracks we've heard from Balam Acab lately (like this one and this one), but Albert Swarm is definitely on his own level, working somewhere in between ambient music, beat music, and more classically inspired sounds.
