Some reviews for the recent "From Behind" flexi on Soft Exit have been posted:
Sunken Cheek - "From Behind"flexi 7"
During the calm one may not feel the tap until it's too late. The realization that in your safest moments you are at risk. A lull replaced by a tense gnawing, the spectre draws ever more near.
This paranoid blackout is the latest single from Sunken Cheek, another tension-filled installment in an ongoing exploration of anxiety. This meditation on fear/mortality was crafted from microphone feedback, vocals, and tape recordings with effects processors. Temporary constructs made briefly tangible.
White flexi 7" with cover/insert printed by Alex York. Design/layout by WC. Released by SOFT EXIT.
Copies of “Wretched Year”, released
on the exceptional Summer Isle label, are now available at +++PR.
“Without Rejection”, a cassette of unreleased material from 2014 and 2015 will be released on

A sample of 'It's Shadow Lies Drunk
at its Feet' from the lathe 7” was featured in Justin Lakes'
masterfully crafted mix for Blackened Disco of Midwestern noise
