‘Rooms / Ruins’
New album released 23rd February 2018 on Unday Records
Tracks like new single ‘Reverie’, a decidedly minimalist number, reveal a calm surface with a vibrating darkness that lurks beneath while ‘Deep Earth’ is hypnotising folk noir that is both urgent and uncompromising.
In recent years, the band have honed their sound, introducing new textures and sound through analogue electronica and sequencers, highlighted on tracks such as ‘Stars’ that blend hypnotic soundscapes with tender female backing vocals, but it’s tracks like ‘Bright Light’, an all-out rock assault, that suggest a band at their most devastating.
