With an eye to societal malaise the music created by Clifford Carpenter isn’t intended to be an easy ride, rather, pointed commentary on the realities be they self-inflicted, unavoidable circumstance or imposed of 21st Century life for far too many around the world.

In advance of the album Work was released as a stand alone single on the 21st and is available on bandcamp.

Ceiling Demons – March Forward – Audio

The English dark-hop outfit Ceiling Demons are currently putting together an LP for release later in the year.

Ceiling Demons

Ceiling Demons

Ceiling Demons have no concern in bringing in unexpected instrumentation to add the appropriate atmosphere to their compositions and from the forthcoming album – March Forward (available on the NARC. eleventh birthday compilation LP via bandcamp) – brass gives the track its sombre tone in a eulogy of loss within which the catharsis finds, in the latter part of the track, bowed strings marking a change in sensibility with brightly sparkling keys also surfacing as the composition concludes with a sense of acceptance and optimistic renewal.

Having also had the opportunity to take a listen to their catalogue which dates back to 2012 – and it is worth time so doing – (available on bandcamp), as Ceiling Demons have grown in self-belief and ability, so their music has equally developed greater confidence and stature.

As more detail of the forthcoming LP surfaces, I will aim to keep you informed.
