Home Away From House EP

Snad - Home Away From House EP

Snad aka Shyam Anand is an artist from Chicago of Indian descent. His debut EP for Suol is a three-tracker and absolute quality. The title track drops us straight into a softly stabby, hypnotic little sequence on top of an elegantly subtle combination of a drum machine groove and synth bass. Things build up patiently with luscious delayed chords before rising strings transport us to a beautiful place where the Goa sun shines onto the streets of Chicago. ‘Cut!!!’s clever drum programming and cool reverbs are in perfect harmony with a melodic bass riff and a silky, modulating analogue lead that guides us to the end with a smile. ‘Deep Looking’, the EP’s final track, has a solid groove at its centre and some delicious ear candy around it. Syncopated toms and claps join forces with a fast hi-hat pattern to provide plenty of momentum for this otherwise dreamily floating acid house track.
