Aloft is a textured and enthralling album that provides insight into the mind of a musician who has overcome a long bought of grief. While no longer touching on the topic of grief itself, the album does show how a stretch of self-imposed isolation for coping purposes can affect the mind.
Hideous Towns is a great listen for those in the mood to be moody. The EP contains a unique medley of sounds; dream-punk-gaze, surrealist romanticism viewed through a kaleidoscope.
This is music best for watching the world go by. With that in mind though, as passive as shoegaze can be, I’ll be damned if I didn’t feel more motivated to go do something after a good listen. It’s slow music, but it’s far from being idle.
