A ten track album of dreamy spires of electronica and brushed vocal which glides through the room as though slates in the Dinorwic quarry as the music filters through the speakers.

The duo are able to create music of intensity as well as flighted composition in to which the listener becomes subsumed by the entrancing, enveloping loops of the gentle washes of the soundscape.

FSC is the third track.

Switcheroo – Perfect Man – Single Review

The Indian alt-rock quintet Switcheroo released the single Perfect Man on the 16th.

Switcheroo

Switcheroo

Intermingling classic rock, metal, maths-rock and a splash of americana enables Switcheroo to create softly spoken music, that is underpinned by solid foundation of technique and construct.

Perfect Man (available on bandcamp), like a chameleon changing colours while crossing variegated terrain, continually changes frequency dynamics through its just over five and a half minutes journey, yet doesn’t overextend its visit nor loose audience part way through, rather invites the listener to take another dip in to the track and further explore the eddies missed first time around.
