Flexagon - Bordeaux 7am

Flexagon

Always a pleasure to return to, Flexagon, is able to sculpt compositions in to mesmeric shapes which take on unanticipated hues with each song being inspired by very different experiences.

Bordeaux 7am (available on bandcamp) came about by walking around Guernsey at quiet hours with only the sounds of the sea playing through the muffle of mist as the aural inspiration, revealing an ambient and lightly textured tidal-drone.

Ariel Minds (available on bandcamp) is the first of four EPs, each themed around one of the elements – this exploring the intangible nature of Air with each of the songs approaching the construct from a different musical perspective.

The closer is Judas.

A ten track album (available on bandcamp) of varied though predominately acoustic led instrumentation which enables Emily Brown to showcase a capable vocal that is able to shape itself in to many styles with its wide dynamic and frequency range, giving the music an ever changing mood that alights upon the listener, from the aloof, via the theatrical to tender ballad.

My pick of the release inevitably being atypical of Bee Eater –  the plugged-in, uptempo and most rock’n’rolly of the album – the sixth – Unseen Girl.

Falling has blended DnB, techno-house and trance in to a mesmerising ambient broken-beat-bass which circles through the room on a scaly, almost reptilian skinned, haw that burrs deep in to the mind.

Uptown Girl is the bright and breezy third composition.
