For those familiar with Random Zero, their 2017 EP, Discrete Transformation promises a somewhat different outing – both ‘icy and boiling at the same time’. If “Héloïse” is anything to go by, Discrete Transformation is certain to keep listeners coming back for more, with a hefty gravity to its weighty charm. The ten tracks on offer are advertised as ‘hypnotic jewels that unashamedly display KØDE’s immense talent’.

With guitars that straddle territory between overwhelmingly heavy and softly punishing, the other musical elements make for a potent mix, capped off by contagious melodies which lodge themselves in the brain. In the hands of Julien Fehlmann’s conscientious production (UnfoldThe OceanDirge, among others), KØDE’s is a music that utilises the shifting of mood and intensity as a landmark of their sound: promising that Discrete Transformation will surely become a lifelong favourite for those ensnared by its sultry roughness.
