The English ethereal-rock outfit Hawk were introduced earlier in the year.

The closing track of the five on the EP – She Knows -, which was released on the 17th, Ghosts is a spellbinding just over four minute composition that drifts around the room in gracious layers which wrap the listener in immersive instrumentation whilst the mesmeric vocal enthrals.
The Italian ethereal-rock trio OfeliaDorme will be releasing the LP Secret Fires on the 17th of March.

A band who first featured well over seven years ago still retain their mysterious soundtrack and despite having one fewer players seem to have become ever darker over the years as their output coats the listener in its spectral translucence.
From the forthcoming album, the first of the eight tracks, Alone With The Stars is best engaged in a shrouding crematorium early morning fog as the ghostly four and a half minutes of mesmerising soundscape spins its gossamer threads around the audience.
The Germany based ethereal rock quartet Lasă Copilu released the LP Glowcore towards the end of last month.
The quartet all from different countries met in the creative hotspot of Berlin, Germany, in 2014 and joined forces to deliver music which has an hypnotic grace that mesmerises the audience in its ambient glow.
Combinations of electronics, instrumentation and voices melt in to each other to reveal music in which the listener becomes as one with the sounds. Tracks which each have slightly different nuances and are not all sung in the same language, affords the just under fifty minutes of Glowcore (available on bandcamp) a mysterious beauty. Of the running time, the closer, Factory Man accounts for heading on towards twenty six minutes.
Always keen to explore the slightly different – my selection from the album is the second track Lasă which features – even getting short solo-break – a wine-glass.
The US ethereal-rock quartet Winterrevealed the EP Daydreaming a few hours ago.

The approaching sixteen minutes – four track release floats around the room in calming quietness as Winter deliver their signature of gauzed guitar and vocal combinations which take the listener away from sense of space and time to relax in the music.
