Graces – Amber – Audio

Graces, a vehicle for the English indie-synth creator Steve Harrison, is set to release the EP – EP1 on the 13th.

Graces

Graces

The second of the five tracks on EP1Amber is delightfully the most robust, in my view, as it eschews much of the user friendly waxing that runs through many of the others on the release. The two central themes slide against each other with the ease of graphite slates, giving the number an intriguing duality and the audience finds themselves checking that they aren’t accidentally playing two tracks at the same time.

The delivery gives the listener the opportunity to concentrate on the Indie influenced edges of Amber, then play it through again to concentrate on the synths, followed by a third play through to harness it all together and each iteration adds to the value of the day.

Scranton, the second of the six tracks on the LP Spin, is a grungy number that sticks to the walls like wet mud and catches the listeners attention with its discordant world-weariness as Muskets deliver a track that showcases their ability to create order out of chaos.

Currently on a tour across parts of England and Wales, Muskets are worth getting out to see if they are in your local area.

Spin – EP – Muskets is available on iTunes.*

With a more centrist sound Not That Easy splashes light paint to the track, which, while a little too radio friendly for my everyday playlist, does provide a bright melody when the need is for bright colours.

From the eponymous LP It’s Alright is the third of the dozen tracks.

The grumbling synth and growling eddies of the dubstep belie a track in which Nocturnal Sunshine shines a faint ray of hope and light in a blur of tortured spirit. Although lasting just over three and a half minutes It’s Alright seems to be over before it has started and the listener is wishing the superlative mix of electronics and vocal were to extend far longer as the hypnotic beat weaves deep into the mind.

Their most recent LP – Horizons was released a couple of months ago, the first of the ten tracks is Refractor.

A easy track to get to grips with as Painted Palms flight the music through the speakers. Reminding of new-romanticism, Refractor has an underlying bass that gives the track a sense of depth and atmosphere.
