The New Zealand ambient-drone quartet Sunken Seas released the LP Glass last month.
Mirage, the first of the nine tracks on the album is presented through voile as the signature haze of sound drifts into the room accompanied by a steady beat. As the track builds so does the activity dimly heard through frosted pane.
Sunken Seas are skilled purveyors of their music, as they manage to balance between keeping the material sufficiently out of sight-line to cause intrigue, whilst keeping the shadowed sounds ever present and focussing the attention to try to seek clarification.
Glass – Sunken Seas is available on iTunes.*
