The US art-rock sextet ACKLAND will be releasing their eponymous LP in March.
The first song to surface from the album being, Rain, which was also released as a standalone single on the 26th.
The track which enters from the speakers with a somnambulistic demeanor flows softly through the room in quiet pacing with the bowed strings giving the composition a spectral temperament as piano and strummed strings add to the sense of something that is not quite of this world, while the vocal affords the song even more sense of the ethereal and it is only the percussion which assures the audience, in denouement, the passing two hundred and twenty two seconds were not a figment of their imagination.
There is little to hear, for those of us who haven’t had the opportunity to see them live, though on the sparsity of what there is around to listen to, which consists of three live tracks one of which is Rain plus the studio version of Rain, I am already looking forward to the album.
Rain – Ackland is available on iTunes.*
