Apart from being a giggle-worthy spoonerism of a certain Scientologist's name, Com Truise is the alias of Seth Haley — a New York producer who prefers to picture himself as an android astronaut while he's crafting his far-out electronic soundscapes. On February 18, he'll at last release a proper follow-up to his perfectly titled 2011 album Galactic Melt — the Wave 1 EP will arrive via Ghostly International and comprise six new songs, including the one you'll find below. "Subsonic" begins with a slow ambient build, but when that crest breaks, we're left with glistening synths, a steady thud, skittering hi-hats, and squelching bass frequencies. It's a bit Boards of Canada meets the Drive soundtrack, though this particular melding of retrofuturism and au courant production is a hallmark of Com Truise's unique touch. Track list and tour dates beneath "Subsonic."
