(Silence)

In Progress

Review by Gary Hill

This three song EP is quite cool. The music here borders modern electronic progressive rock of acts like Porcupine Tree and The Pineapple Thief. I toyed with the idea of putting it under progressive rock, but I think it probably lands a bit closer to things like Depeche Mode. Whatever you call it, though, the rich, dense arrangements, driving sounds and great hooks (along with multiple layers of vocals) really make this a winner.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2018  Volume 5 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
At the End
I dig the cool electronic vibe to this cut. It moves with a great flow, and has some killer alternative rock and pop built into it. It's a classy tune that works really well. It has some nice hooks and a cool flow to it.
Blaze of Glory
Slower and more on the moody side, this isn't that far removed from some of the modern progressive rock out there. It has a lot of electronic music built into it and is quite cool. Then again, this has a lot in common with things like Depeche Mode, too. It does get more along the lines of alternative rock and shoegaze, though. It's a strong tune that's very interesting.
Freshkigal
Depeche Mode styles that manage to rock are driving this tune. This has that electronic new wave kind of vibe. Somehow it really manages to stand taller than the other two cuts, though. I love the multiple layers of vocals and the whole song really just works quite well. It's catchy and lush with a really dense arrangement.
