    Burial and The Bug have released Dive / Rain, a new EP under the moniker Flame 2. 

    This two-track project is their second collaboration following Fog / Shrine, which they released as Flame 1 last year. “Dive” is an ominous soundscape filled with gut-busting effects and fragmented beats. “Rain,” on the other hand, builds on a thumping bass line, jagged glitches and hallucinogenic beats.

    This EP comes off the back of Burial’s Claustro / State Forest release in June. The Bug has kept even busier in 2019, releasing Solitude as King Midas Sound and Sirens under his real name Kevin Richard Martin. He also dropped the ZONAL EP with Godflesh’s Justin Broadrick last month.
