A low rose trellis is a Pittsburgh electronic musician whose compositions gradually unfurl like the leaves of a digital plant.
A low rose trellis’s new song, “kind to be,” is not a Yoda-themed cover of a Swans track, as one might think. Instead, it’s an extended meditation built around a pulsating synth pattern that ebbs and flows like a tide of 1s and 0s on a beach of static sand. Over the course of nearly ten minutes, the song builds from flickering minimalism to a climax of rapidly shuffling percussion, blown-out electronic fuzz, and semi-random beeps ‘n boops. You can sit and vibe to this one while you mourn the lost hour of sleep that accompanies Daylight Saving Time.
