Konx-om-Pax – Ways Of Seeing
Just before the release of his previous Konx-om-Pax LP (2016’s Caramel) project mastermind Tom Scholefield relocated from his native Glasgow to the bright lights of Berlin. Given that Caramel was already pretty much done by the time Scholefield left Scotland, new album Ways Of Seeing represents the first record he has released that has Berlin in its blood. Scholefield is hardly the first artist to be drawn to the German capital for its promise of artistic inspiration, and Ways Of Seeing certainly takes on some of the elements of his new hometown’s sound. Though Ways Of Seeing is another Konx-om-Pax full-length helmed by beat-driven electronic compositions and sci-fi synths, a newly-streamlined sonic aesthetic hints at cues taken from minimal and dub techno.
