Taken from their upcoming album ‘Halocline’, the Atlanta duo composed by Scott Burland (theremin) Frank Schultz (lap steel guitar), brings us the single track ‘Malestrom’, a cinematic instrumental number, which with its 6 minutes of listening , make us sink into the great power of the kaleidoscopic drone eddy.
So ‘Maelstrom’ magnificently introduces the next album ‘Halocline’, announced for May 16th, 2020, bringing us a cinematic piece with a spectacular scenography. Between vaporous tones, visceral drones and pregnant atmospheres, Burland’s theremin and Shultz’s lap steel guitar sail figuratively in slow-motion, on the brink of that Maelstrom that titles the song itself.
By designing a flowing slideshow, that scroll in a slow but inexorable and organic overview, the two artists mount a soundtrack that conveys all the sense of astonishment, fear, majesty and dismay that we could feel if we were to peep on the edge of one of the most powerful and profound representations of the force of nature.
Impeccably sequenced, with an evolutionary permeance that always keeps us anchored to the same sound environment, the drone musical argumentation varies in minimal details, dragging us into a surprisingly immersive listening experience, capable of telling a wide amount of details.
Transcendental to the nth degree, in constant balance between tensed dismay and amazing beauty.
