The New Zealand ambient-rock and visual arts collective, Plaines, released their eponymous LP on the 27th of August.
The softly brushed velvet textured album (available on bandcamp) which has a dreamy gauze through which the eight songs are filtered drifts slowly through the room settling gently on the ears.
Given the still waters which emerge from the speakers, it may be anticipated there is little happening under the surface, far from it, akin to a swan frantically paddling beneath the apparently effortlessly gliding body, so it is with Plaines who elegantly deliver what are complex underpinning sequences and structures.
The fifth song – From Silence would seem to be an appropriate track to introduce their work.
