Review

Formed in 2008, Al Matthews and Patrick Walker's Forward Strategy Group project have become a central element of Ali Wells' Perc Trax label. Following their Labour Division LP, The New Formal EP represents the pair's first material since that album, and builds on their Perc Trax output by combining the emotive content of album with the harder hitting industrial sounds of their previous EPs. The title track sees Forward Strategy Group apply processional organ sounds and tremolo-effected keys on top of compounded beats, while the swung and broken-beat rhythms of "Clean Neckline" strike with bullish force amidst a seething flurry of distortion and overdrive. The New Formal also retains lineage with the pair's Perc Trax debut, with "Code#3" a continuation of the sounds of "Code#1" and "Code#2", a track vividly described as brandishing "a snare that could floor a toddler from 50 paces".
