The quartet draw inspiration for their music from the universe, science fact and science fiction to create their visions of a dystopian future.

Out Of Nothing, however, is inspired by something, or rather, someone else and was revealed as a tribute to Steven Hawking, the theoretical physicist, who died on the 14th.

The six track, roughly thirty eight minutes, album (available on bandcamp) has a dystopian oppressiveness that fills the room in shadows of synthesised guitars, distant, yet unrelenting, percussion and immersive electronica.

Though dark in presence, Digitalis, is nonetheless an entrancing LP of ambient soundscape in which the listener feels their body and mind becoming as one with the music and far from feeling threatened by the hidden menace finds themselves hypnotically attracted and desirous of exploring the many layers of the compositions.

My pick of the release being the longest track, running at thirteen minutes, the second on the album – Rephlex.
