The slowly uncurling electronica and synthesised guitar drifts through the room like blue smoke caught in sunlight holding the listener in its complexities of shape and sedative intangibility. The slow pulse of the music is married with a mellow vocal that, akin to a chamois leather, forms a soft coating to the song further enhancing the hypnotic ambience of Breathe with the listener becoming conscious only of the quiet flow of the three and five sixth minutes composition.

flowstate create material in to which the audience could immerse their mind for lengthy periods, hence a full LP would be a welcome addition to the handful of individual tracks that currently exist.

A couple of songs have surfaced from the album, the most recent –  Alive – quite different to the other, more glazed-synth Sacrifice.

Alive is a track that stirs the speakers in to life as an opening credit of rock derived guitar bludgeons its way in to the room, to be joined initially by an angular glitch which transmutes in to a sloshing triphop synthesis prior to everything exploding in to its various individual constituent elements – creating an aural firework display with the, in juxtaposition to the song title and narrative, glumpy vocal forming a defining bridge between the disparate ingredients.

Like an unreleased coiled-spring the music surges out of the music in flashing percussion and guitar with the sounds bursting through the room. Though the material is intensely packed Echolines do not use the impetus to fire up the volume rather use bass to keep tight rein on the compositions allowing them to develop the themes of the songs with the topping of a well measured vocal providing the audience with a soundtrack that holds attention.

From the forthcoming LP Ratherhaveu was released as a standalone single yesterday.

The Blackheart Orchestra – Breathe – Audio

The English dreamy-electro duo The Blackheart Orchestra are set to release the LP Diving For Roses on the 25th.

The mystical – approaching fifty five minutes, dozen track album, Diving For Roses is best enjoyed in quiet company to allow the washes of scintillating instrumentation to drift around the room as the singular vocals, akin to a sprite dancing on flower-tips, captivates the mind.




The Blackheart Orchestra are able to pipette sufficient melancholia to the material to quiver the lips whilst simultaneously embracing the listener in comforting arms allowing the audience rest tearful head on soft pillow and finding solace in the ethereal sadness as the duo demonstrate both skilled composition and sympathetic delivery as they translate their ideas in to an LP that is well worth adding to the collection.

My pick of the release is the penultimate number –  Breathe – in which The Blackheart Orchestra are most deft in relaying the context of Diving For Roses as the duo deploy a broad range of instrumentation, each of, which ideally suit the three chapters of the just under the six and almost a quarter minutes of the piece that, to me, is their finest orchestration thus far.

An opening panting breath lays across the expressive vocal, surrounded by piano / synth delivering a misty backdrop, prior to introducing an intensity of Spanish Guitar that captures the mood before gradually evolving to bowed strings that reflects of the emotional turmoil being played out in the composition concluding with the third element of the track which has a more pugnacious underpin of electric guitar that invites the listener to come up from the submersion to breathe air, rested rather than wracked.
