The Danish metal quartet Chiro are set to release the LP Tunnel later this year.
From the forthcoming album the second track to appear Bender threads a knot of dark oppressive guitar that unhurriedly herds the listener in to the corner of the room with its menacing, prowling presence as Chiro deliver a composition that is riven with sense of a predator waiting to pounce.
An eleven track album (available on bandcamp) that injects itself in to the veins as the multi-textured songs appear in the room.
An LP that reflects on self-analysis of personal relationships, the cultural conservatism of much of Australia and wider political thought which holds the audience transfixed from start to end of the roughly fifty one minutes run time.
The Australian ambient-wave band Rat & Co release the LP Third Law on the 25th.
Rat & Co
Inviting the listener to join them in watching still waters reflecting an off-blue hue in – Control – the eleventh track of the fourteen on the forthcoming release Rat & Co are able to imbue a hazy shadow to the room which is all the more appealing for its weather-worn features.
The Australian indie-rock outfit Lime Cordiale are finalising details for an LP due for release later in the year.
Lime Cordiale – Temper Temper
Today does seem to be one of catching up with bands not featured for a few years and it was back in 2015 that Lime Cordiale last featured.
The first track to surface from the album – Temper Temper – is a song that bounces across the room in changing refraction akin to a snooker ball playing off a worn cushion and it is the changes of direction and tempo that holds attention.
The German indie quintet CNGRTS release the EP A Fall from Grace on the 1st of September.
Counterintuitively given the song title Sedative, the first track to surface from the forthcoming release, is a more zingy soundtrack than music of theirs previously featured with sparkling guitar laid against sprightly tempo although the vocal maintains their signature drifting melancholia.
