Those with a closer eye to detail will notice I did reference a different project a few days ago by one and the same person – Cyberwave and as mentioned in that article Fatal Nostalgia is the more current thread of focus.

Again, with numerous releases this time dating back to 2012 (all available on bandcamp), Fatal Nostalgia offers plenty to hear while relaxing in a warming saline bath. The music flows around the head massaging the cranium and gradually the synapses, breathing and heart rate decelerate to the pace of the whooshes of unhurried euphonious compositions that thread through the room.

Whilst the tracks are extended variations on a theme there is nothing self-indulgent and the listener finds themselves wishing phrases were extended further as Fatal Nostalgia reveals music that has the attraction and mesmerising qualities of multi-coloured fractals spinning in the breeze.

A very difficult set of schematics to generate something new from time after time, yet Fatal Nostalgia is able to generate original compositions which follow the flow chart and thus far there have been over thirty pieces extending to in excess of two hours of material.

From the five track EP Quietus – the second Elysium.

Sky Cathedrals – Elysium – Single Review

The English synth-wave duo Sky Cathedrals released their début single – Elysium on the 18th.

If you have been here for a while you will recall the band Gorilla Punch Radio and it may well come as surprise to find that Sky Cathedrals are formed by half of the hard-rock sounding quartet.

Working with a guest vocalist – Florence GlenElysium is a track that soars, glides and swoops around the room with the elegance of an Albatross gliding on thermals. The combinations of keys, strings and synthetics ease their way into the ears, culminating in a closing refrain of accompanied wind-instruments and bowed-strings, which leaves the listener in contemplative silence long after the notes have faded into silence.

If there is more to follow from this, I will keep you informed.
