The ‘Under The Tracks’ EP represents Formation’s first collaboration with Brighton’s house master/producer Leon Vynehall. Lead track ‘All The Rest is Noise’ finds Formation harnessing their dual talents for insistent pop hooks and groove-orientated instrumental loops into their most immediately memorable moment to date. With a message that, you shouldn’t suffer alone, shouldn’t listen to those negative voices, shouldn’t put yourself down. It can change.
The EP title track ‘Under The Tracks’ drops the tempo as piano, cowbell and Will Ritson’s increasingly energised vocals flow together into a haze of rhythms; ‘Love’ layers upwards from its pulsing bass into a blend of waves of new disco with a defiant lyrical message about social alienation and a call for Love and solidarity between all people; Whilst ‘Control’ strips Formation’s sound right back to its core with its inventiveness.
