‘Dahmer’ is just one of the experimentally pensive tracks from Srac’s latest EP ‘Softmore’. Whilst it’s not uncommon to use tonally deep piano notes in a track prelude, the haunting weight of the heavy notes carries right the way through ‘Dahmer’ in the Neo-Soul composition. With minimal progression in the track, it can feel a little overwhelming, yet, I have no doubt that was the exact intention when Srac composed Dahmer. However, by the time the track drew to a close, I was on the cusp of an existential crisis. Whilst I have no aversion to melancholically wounding tracks, for me, it was a little too much as the vocals sat in a soul-shattering synergy with the melody.
