Surrender is the second release by the electronic experimentalists Metatag from Norway. This time, Metatag have taken their sound to deeper ambiences and dystopian stretches. Remaining true to their (n)ever-changing melodies and drones, they invite the listener to their almost cinematic soundscapes. This release was produced by recording hardware synths and samplers, optimizing the machines' characteristics and 'weaknesses'. Do not listen to surrender while driving a tank.
Recorded in Tromsø and Oslo. Mastered in Seattle, by Duff Egan.
