A couple of tracks have surfaced from the album, the most recent of which – Astral Body – was released as a standalone single yesterday.

A song marked by the contrasts between the distinctive falsetto vocal, pulsing beat and elasticated synth which creates a multi-layered dynamism to the tripped out composition.

The first track to surface from the album – Abyssal Sky – fills the room with psychedelic washes of texturing that thread through the quiet cycles of electronica and hazy vocal, giving the piece a sense of being out on a calm sea drifting on a raft while basking in warming summer rays.

The middle track on the single Mother fills the room with an acoustic led ballad that draws tears from the eyes and serves as a fine introduction to a superb, emotionally charged vocal, which continues to haunt the mind long after the song has faded from the ears.

The Smallest Creature – Coward’s Wish – Audio

The Republic of Cyprus alt-rock trio The Smallest Creature released the LP Million on the 18th.

The Smallest Creature

The just under forty minutes, eleven track, album is an undertow of dark melancholia, flecked with  shimmering crystals which keeps the listener teetering betwixt optimism and dark mood.

The sense of Million (available on bandcamp) is of travelling in to a deep and potentially fatal mine-shaft bedecked by the elixir of life if only one is prepared to take the plunge. It is a dive worth taking as the listener is wrapped in gossamer threads of delicate guitars chords whilst flooded with burbling bass and exploratory percussion whilst the signature vocal holds a candle around the damp wall lighting the path to the hidden jewels.

My pick of the release is the eighth number on the LP – Coward’s Wish.
