A mesmerising approximately thirty six minutes, ten track album (available on bandcamp), in to which the audience can feel their inner being sublimate with each becoming indistinguishable from the other.
The hypnotically entrancing combinations of various instruments, particularly the dream-state theremin and ethereal vocal drift though the room casting their bewitching spell in to which the listener pleasurably succumbs.
The fourth track Τα Μαλλιά Της (Her Hair) being my pick of the release.
The first track to surface from the album, Παπαρούνα (Poppy), was itself released as a standalone single at the tail end of last month.
The swirling thermals of electronica, theremin and vocals of Παπαρούνα drift through the room as though an albatross gliding effortlessly far out over the ocean transporting the listener, too, into a higher stratosphere and away from the hubbub of the day.
Cameran is an empathetic-hop creator from the USA.
Fully aware of the struggles of day to day life, which he doesn’t hide from, Cameran does however approach the institutional racism of the surrounding society, not from a confrontational perspective, rather extending a link with those who are not of closed neanderthal mindset and positing there is a positive way to ensure the future is not full of the blind hatred of the structures of 2017 USA. The latest track is BLOOM.
From the LP Everything Forever, which was released last month – Bloom, the first of the ten tracks, encapsulates everything that is the essence of Victories At Sea.
A mesmerising synth is blended with expansive guitar to which an insistent percussion drives the track forward, topped by a vocal that seems to emerge from a cloud, leaving the audience enraptured by the luscious textures of sound that wrap up the mind in a comforting blanket.
Having celebrated the launch event of Everything Forever last night, Victories At Sea have laid the groundwork to maximise their potential for wider recognition over the next year.
