Haunting, gratifying, and very indie, Den-Mate's Entropii is a pleasing blend of Icelandic dream rock and the sounds of synthwave/witch-house pioneers Crystal Castles. With an eerie aesthetic that is very much 2010s-dark indie, Den-Mate is making music that is not only very trendy, but also quite high-level. This is quality material, well produced, full of crisp and clean melodies clashing with unsettling backing tracks.
The impressive craftsmanship on display here is a sign of the young Virginia native's potential, Den-Mate is definitely a band to look out for in the near future.
