It was back in 2014 that the English alt-rock quartet Jekyll last featured.
Their latest single Mania was released on the 28th of September.
There is a scintillating tremble which shivers down the spine on hitting play as the ghostly architecture of the song appears through a dense cloud of fog as acoustic guitars marks the entrance of a track which presses through the room in an ever darker shadow as puddled bass and percussion tumble through the ears with electronic guitar blending in to soundtrack whilst overarching the composition is a vocal, which if it were the last sound ever heard in dying breath would make for a life well rounded.
I lamented, recently, of how too many people listen to music through tinny mobile phones and Mania is a prime example of why I raised such consternation – as without a full speaker set up and sub-woofer scattering the undertow there is no possibility of appreciating the layers of textures herein.
