'Ironworks' finds Baths exploring a sweet piano melody backed by sweeping strings. The opening piano progression and string accompaniment are reminiscent of Sigúr Ros. A glitch beat sneaks in underneath giving the track a rich texture, with his vocal croons in a style that reminds me of earlier Prince ballads, hitting an upper register that occasionally hints at a falsetto. Lyrically, 'Ironworks' is difficult to crack; I'm not sure what Baths means when he sings about "Victorian doorways in tempestuous foreplay," but the atmosphere on 'Ironworks' is one that makes repeated listening easy and rewarding.

The result is a beautiful track that gives us an idea of the musical scope of Obsidian.

Obsidian is released May 27th via anticon.
