Revealed within the past twenty four hours – from the release – Where This Is Going has been made available.

I have had the pleasure of threading through the just under three quarters of an hour, dozen track, album and can attest it is time you will not regret spending in his company.

Whilst there is much to enjoy, there are equally a few highlights and kindly Andy cleared for me to share the eighth track Where This Is Going and my pick of the release in a darker moment on Embers.

With a subtlety of bass line that does enough to wobble the sub-woofers, but not rattle them out of their cages in a composition that is of counterpoint between the alternating minors and majors of vocal and strumming poised by fleeced drumstick giving the piece a delicious texture akin to the sharpness of a Morello Cherry soaked in Kirsch luxuriating in a layer of cream encased in dark chocolate.

Embers – The Bitten Tongue – Audio

Embers is an ambient-rock quartet from England.

Formed a few years ago Embers got off to a bright start then, as though their name was of prescience, glowed less brightly for a while as they extricated themselves from some bad music industry decisions, such are the perils of the business. With some fortune despite the aggravation, they kept their hand on the tiller and have been able to resurface with plans for a forceful recording and live appearance come-back next year.

The sardonically named The Bitten Tongue evidences Embers have lost none of their touch for the expansive as the molten gold spreads itself across the room in luscious tempers of guitars and fluid percussion, finished by a bitter-sweet expressive vocal, with the listener engrossed in the lugubrious thematic progression.
