London-based producer Pause has unveiled the highly sanitized "Plucky" tune ahead of the release of his forthcoming Distance EP on December 2. On his production, Pause employs a stocky kick drum, electronic bleeps, and searing frequencies that are washed out by a salvo of piercing tones. He balances the sounds on a nearly swung beat, as buzzing static and clipped synthscapes phase in an out of the mix while the whole thing builds to a fractured and lulled conclusion.
