An overwhelmingly deep journey into the soul of the band itself. An inverted masterpiece of lush and dark ambient/post-rock with unfurling melancholic guitars and warm piano sparsely placed throughout. This album is just as immersive and fraught with emotion as their heavier works.
Favorite track: South.
"The album is based on dark, unsettling backgrounds made of guitar reverbs and drones, that are slightly lightened with keys and lonely riffs" ENGLISH: bit.ly/2WpCdvIFavorite track: South.
These sounds are organic outgrowths of latent ideas from each of the four parts of Utopioid. Thank you for having an open mind.
