The compelling sadcore melodies pall brooding shadows through the room in the approximately sixteen minutes release (available on bandcamp) which hold the audience in ethereal embrace.
The flow of violin and electronica enables the music to inflect the haunting beauty of the omnipresent melancholia which is filtered through the harmonies of voice. The softened guitars layer the changing shapes of sound while the subdued percussion and bass form an unobtrusive though firm framework for the compositions.
The Germany based, Norwegian, etherealwave project centred around Tuva Hellum Marschhäuser who performs as Tuvaband released the single Wolfpack on the 13th.

Originally formed as a duo Wolfpack is the first song to be revealed that reflects of the new Tuvaband reconfiguration.
Rather than layering the song with antonyms of sound the track has a mellowed flow of synonyms that melt one in to the other creating just over four and a half minutes of dreamy ambient harmonised electronica that wraps softly around the spectral voice and leaves the listener becalmed from the daily travails of life.
Continuing to secure gigs across Europe forthcoming appearances in Iceland and Germany can only enhance the reach of a more than capable musician.
The English British-Blues duo Leontas released the two track single Rhythm + Blues yesterday.

Leontas create music which is unashamedly steeped in the roots of ’60s rock, delivering music that no matter how loudly played can always sustain more as the gnarly riffs knot through the room on the back of a thumping drum-kit and rounded by a more than able vocal.
By way of an introduction the title track and opener of yesterdays release – Rhythm + Blues.
The first track to surface from the album, Pawnshop, which is the follow-up to their 2016 eponymous début LP finds Daphne And The Fuzz with the familiarity of retrospective influences, though this time around steeped in the vitals of ’70s disco-soul.
