Norway's finest purveyors of off-kilter, crystalline pop, Soft as Snow (Oda Egjar Starheim and Øystein Monsen), follow their 2014 debut, the Glass Body EP (HTH 022EP), and Glass Body Remixed (HTH 032EP), with the four-track Chrysalis EP. "I Adore" is characterized by abrasive synths and shimmering inflections, while "Fluid" builds from glassy restraint to synth freak-out. "Mouth" is a menacing statement of intent, all tribal percussion and primal yelps, calling to mind the unsettling production of Mica Levi's soundtrack for Under the Skin (2014). The energetic, skittering "Her Blood Is Gold" features Oda's strange, otherworldly vocal binding it all together.
