On June 27, Melbourne-based label Enhancer Records will drop its sophomore release, Lithe's Fervent Gum.

Operating in a musical space that counts the likes of Cut Hands, The Haxan Cloak, HEALTH, and Forest Swords as contemporaries, Lithe makes powerful and carefully crafted sonic tapestries in which haunting melodies collide with splintered percussion and fragile textures.

Fervent Gum finds Lithe reflecting on "the journey of migrating from Townsville to Melbourne: arid Australian landscapes, sleepless nights in a freezing car, and visits from aboriginal spirits." The resulting output is jarring, dissonant, abstract, and haunting, an emotive EP of sprawling complexities.

The EP will be available both digitally and as a limited-edition rubine red cassette of 100 units, with design from the Ukrainian designer Anton Leggo.

You can pre-order the release here, with the EP's title track available as a download via WeTransfer below, along with the track's video.
