The addition of saxophone and keys to the line-up of instrumentation allow dome hall to take the listener on unexpected travels of sound as they combine rock underlays with folk influences to deliver music that seemingly expands as it emerges from the speakers as the tracks soar elegantly through the room.

The latest track to surface is Sugarray which is approaching five minutes of luscious gliding texturing.

Sugarray – dome hall is available on iTunes.*

A spread of voices and instrumentation is not used to create volume rather multi-layered compositions which, like waves on the sea, have a discernible direction of travel which is suddenly broken by unseen currents allowing The Broadest Blue to leave the listener never be quite sure where the next bar will head, though equally not make the ideas so complex there are jagged edges of confusion.

From the most recent LP Kennedy (which is available on bandcamp) the seventh of the ten tracks – Smoke.

There is a palpable sadness that encases the room on hitting play as the piped synthetics mark the entrance of deeply textured electronica and floating lyric that weaves in to the mind.

By way of an introduction Peach which is the first of the four tracks on the recent EP Headless.

The B-side of the release (available on bandcamp) – The Fool – is one in which a plaintiff vocal elicits a teary-eyed response by the listener enhanced further by the stark guitar which accompanies the voice.

Those of longer stay with the site may well recall The Exploding Boy from back in 2013 with its menacing countenance – Johan Sjöblom – is the common thread.

Their latest track to surface London Falling reminds me precisely why I enjoy their compositions as the low-slung music drifts through the room as though borne on gently rolling clouds with the hazy spectral vocal gliding in to the ears from far away.
