Psyrok: Psyrok

New Zealand Electronica artist, Psyrok, has released this debut 5 track, 22 minute EP. More than this I can't tell you as the web site is as psylent about the person involved or the purpose behind the music as is the CD artwork and agent's introduction.

Piano, synth and vocals (which sound something like they do on Porcupine Tree's very reflective numbers) are intermingled with narrative loops and light percussion on the opening and closing tracks. Synthesised brass and string motifs occasionally add more of an orchestral feel.

"I'm Threw" is particularly intriguing with its odd meter and treated, Laurie Anderson style, vocals. "Viable Commodity" is more aggressive with its drug theme and sharp multi-angled synth stabs piercing the street narrative while menacing percussion and synth provide background. "Soma" was released as a single and can be found on

This varied stylistic outing by Psyrok resists the urge of many electronica producers to replace quality with quantity, suggesting that this artist has much more to offer us in future.
