After Time Enough At Last (TOKEN 068EP, 2016), Antigone returns with Ostinato. The record is thematically accurate, adhering to its title's suggestion. The tracks play with layering techniques, gradually building a spectrum of sound around their respective persistent motifs. Antigone shifts these insistent base elements, allowing them the foreground before masking within a blend of processed and organic-sounding details. "Ostinato 1" is mild and disconcerting with strings that seem unnatural in their high pitch. "Ostinato 2" is more traditionally dramatic, the space filled with keys that follow the theme, building to an ostentatious crescendo reminiscent of the roots of trance.
