In a way, the latest single from Brooklyn experimental pop quartet Conveyor is a return to form of sorts. Not to the vibrant, quirky rock pop of their debut self-titled full length which they’ve never really veered away from but the earlier days when Conveyor was far more electronic based in songs like “Twin Bank” and even some cuts from their Sun Ray EP. “Theme I (Edit)”, the first single from their upcoming instrumental album Prime, sees the foursome dipping their brushes in a bit of ambient coloring but not quite dulling their extensive textural pallet. It’s an interesting foray deeper into the world of electronics once more that the band manages to imbue with their unpredictable spirit. From the twangy lead guitar line that would not be at all out of place in Conveyor’s standard pop gems, “Theme I (Edit)” is more or less a development on a simple theme. A development that just so happens to include a swath of rising brass as it undulates forward a la perpetuum mobile before coming to a sputtering finish.
Conveyor’s instrumental full length Prime is out July 15th on double 12″ via Gold Robot Records.
