Scenic from Perth in Australia is the ambient electronic quartet of Adam, Eric, Doug and Nicholas.
Scenic produce a sound which would make you think they sit squarely in the South West Coast America scene as the washes of watercolour sounds flow across the room. Generous loops of electronica are given room to explore the spaces whilst percussion and guitar define the shapes and hazed vocals blur the edges leaving the listener feeling as though they are in an immersion tank.
I really should have set this for publication on Saturday after a great Friday night out, but having spent some time having a listening to the unhurried and relaxed sounds I thought the weekend needed extending back to Thursday.
This is music which fits across much of the globe, to such an extent it was a French label – Tigersushi who gave them their first recording breaks. Now signed with the Australian label Future Classic they have recently released a five track EP – Shockwaves. Their music is gaining far broader recognition and with the Australian summer festival season just beginning to set up schedules and get into flow, I would expect to hear far more of Scenic over the coming year.
Shockwaves – EP – Scenic is available on iTunes.*
