Electronic auteurs Holly Herndon and Mat Dryhurst were asked by the London clothing brand Cottweiler to make a collaborative piece to share alongside the brand's Autumn/Winter 2015 line, and, because of course they did, they responded with "Recruit," a charmingly creepy composition that evokes eerie futuristic landscapes and cyber battles. Like the best music we've heard from Holly and Mat to date, it's almost too chilling to listen to more than once, it's deeply visual, summoning gorgeous and horrifying imagery out of science fiction, and it's stunningly crafted, working in impossibly weird sounds that straddle the border between human, animal, and machine.
