*Press A* ~ Floex: Papetura

Soundtracking a game about paper figures trying to avoid shadowy threats and fire, Papetura swaddles a sombre set in diaphanous layers of keys and strings. It’s the product of Czech producer Floex, fast becoming something of a mainstay in the

Hara Alonso ~ Somatic Suspension
