Druid Cloak "Sterling Thrones"
Following the release of his debut record for Symbols late last year, mysterious beatmaker Druid Cloak has continued to craft a unique sound away from the spotlight, and here, we're treated to a forward-thinking cut from the producer's Bastion of the Sterling Thrones EP. "Sterling Thrones" nods to the unsettling atmosphere of cinematic thrillers, but basks in its crunchy drumwork, eerie pads, and frenetic synth runs. The spacey tune unfolds as Druid Cloak paces his track handily, gradually revealing new FX, production tricks, and changing moods along the way. Before it drops on September 9 via Bad Taste, more of the Bastion of the Sterling Thrones EP can be previewed after the jump.
