Atlanta’s Shorn Silk is difficult to pin down. Google them, for instance, and you’re as likely to shoot down a rabbit hole of Etsy shops for rug-makers as you are to find the group itself. Their sound is equally slippery, kneading techno beats from an array of modular synths. Their recent track “Pith” begins with a continuous, low pulse that throngs with warm static. Gradually, the sound of marbles colliding emerges before a thumping beat takes over. It’s simultaneously organic and alien, grungy and warm, always propelling you forward.
