Nautiluss – Alpha EP /// Turbo Recordings
Murky, deep synths that subtly draw attention…
Words: Ryan Webb
Graham Bertie is the artist known to many as Nautiluss. Toronto born and bred- Nautiluss has constructed a reputation for murky, deep synths that subtly draw attention. If you’re looking for something dark, a touch cold, and an artist who threatens to be creepy; Nautiluss’ “Alpha” is well worth an investment of your time.
Mixed Numbers is a dark groove mover, that while quite up-lifting has dark bass undertones- this serves as prescience for much of this release.
With its subtle beginning, Sabbath offers a fast-tempo beat with a collection of random synths. Despite this, Sabbath is a tightly constructed sound, relying on a dedicate rhythm that touches on something a bit sinister.
Cloud City is a jumpy and playful stripped down sound; looping with deep synths. The lighter use of percussions gives this track an easier feel- a chilled end of the night groove. While Spidercrawlis is made of dark, moody synths that are introduced with the minimal use of scattering drums developed on top. This track sums up what Nautiluss is about: Subtly standing away in the shadows from the standard electronic sound. Real music listeners will acknowledge this, but whether masses will- is as always- another matter. Nautiluss’ use of synths and drums are clever and varied, only with a few listens and a decent musical palliate- would one appreciate Nautiluss.
