Invasions from Canada were reviewed in November and they have just released a new three track single – No Darkness.
Opening with the title track No Darkness reminds me of a spaghetti western. There is a feature of the music that Invasions delivers being that much of it has a cinematic feel. The shoegazy guitars are joined by violins in sections through the piece enhancing the orchestrated feel to the track, whilst a subsumed vocal glistens in the background.
Black Lagoon has a similar brooding lavishness in a more Lynchian style as a solid bass drum pumps through the speakers whilst the guitars echo around the room.
My pick of the release also happens to be the longest track, at three minutes six seconds, Unknown Pleasures goes to the off-beat with the five players working in unison in a flourish of melodramatic foot stomping rock ‘n’ roll.
No Darkness is available on bandcamp.
