The beat is brutal and snappy as hell as it sounds like it's from Depeche Mode's 'Ultra' era. On the opposite, the vocals are soft, smooth and very calming. A mixture that harmonises perfectly and creates a mystical, bleak mood.
Together with the previously featured songs 'Pool', 'Weight', 'Close To None', and 'Repetition', the album 'Everything Is Repetition' is an absolute buy recommendation.

Hatif about 'A Small Scratch'
“A Small Scratch” is the opening track of the debut album Everything Is Repetition by Swedish electronic duo Hatif. The song is dark, tense and heavy with lyrics about the vulnerability of life. Influenced by Bowie, Depeche Mode and Front 242 of the 80s and the more recent Editors. Close genres: synthpop, indie pop, post-punk, EBM, new wave and Middle Eastern influences. Hatif has received critical acclaim for songs revolving around our attempts to reach each other, rebellion and resistance.
