The opening track Rest of Me
starts off the EP with a bang, asking the questions about ourselves that we don't like to admit we consider. The combination of deeply personal lyrical material and bouncy instrumentation creates Ansonia's distinctive tone, that the duo likes to call "depressing dance music." Ultrasensitive
's tracks Dare
and Weighing Me Down
carry this same conflicted yet comforting energy further into the EP. The duo's production style shines through in these two tracks, featuring vocal sampling and lush electronic instrumentation. To close the EP, Marble Floors
strips away everything but one voice and one electric guitar, to tell a story that needs nothing more.
From front to back, Ansonia has used Ultrasensitive
as a means to explore the hardships that shape us into complex and beautiful human beings, and to show that it's alright not to be alright. Say hello to Ansonia.
