The US synth-rock project Holden Laurence released the LP Wild Empty Promises on the 5th.
A ten track, approximately forty two minutes, album (available on bandcamp) that is highlighted by the luxurious textures that swirl around the room.
There is a melancholic undertow to the songs that captivates attention as the subtle synthetics extend the bars of the echoing guitar and vocal giving the tracks their emotional draw. The percussion cuts through the hazy musical layers through which an extremely capable vocal expresses the context of the compositions.
My selection from Wild Empty Promises is the seventh – Cover Me In Roses.
