low horizon – four songs too long – artwork
A wide ranging journey of sound is available to hear on the roughly twenty minutes, five track EP (available on bandcamp), which makes sense, as low horizon do have an extensive range of influences which is borne through their music.
There were a couple of stand out songs for me, which at least disproves the theory of the release title – one of which was the closer Funeral; a track that I enjoyed for its compression of everything bar the atmospheric synth which drifts through the song in its own good time, like a puppy not quite yet familiar with the idea of going for a walk on a lead. How is it possible not to be enamoured?
Funeral is a track I am able to share with you from four songs too long – though sadly don’t have the go ahead to share my pick of the release – 40//Death which is worth the price of the EP, when it is released next month, on its own.
First introduced in 2015 as Boys Of Terror a significant change, aurally, is heard by Kalle Mossberg, the bassist, now being full-time with the new iteration of Dolorifics, rather than being purely the live performance bassist, which enables them to create a more rounded sound to the material with every player now being an integral part of the developmental progress of a song.
From their latest EP Excessive Self-Pity (which is available on bandcamp) the third of the four tracks – Goodbye – which evidences the stronger bond betwixt each element.
The English electro-lofi project centred around John Sterry – Billionaire – releases the EP Cheap Credit on the 31st.
From the forthcoming EP – the penultimate of the five tracks – World Loves A Trier has a mystical presence that hangs in the air long after the song has completed.
Those of longer stay may recollect the name John Sterry being first introduced back in 2009 as part of Gaoler’s Daughter and whilst over seven years have passed the distinctive voice still remains as recognisable and absorbing as ever was the case.
