Black Swan

Marking a clandestine arrival out of, seemingly, nowhere, Black Swan emerges from the shadowy billows of smoke to immerse listeners in a lucid,cavernous dream, tracing silhouettes in the darkness with drowning ambience and orchestrated drones that screech and howl intermittently amongstthe disorienting magnetic tape disturbances. Black Swan operates under a guise of far-away sounds traveling through murky waters, drowning thelistener in its heavy-handed layers of ghostly resonance.

Marking a clandestine arrival out of, seemingly, nowhere, Black Swan emerges from the shadowy billows of smoke to immerse listeners in a lucid,cavernous dream, tracing silhouettes in the darkness with drowning ambience and orchestrated drones that screech and howl intermittently amongstthe disorienting magnetic tape disturbances. Black Swan operates under a guise of far-away sounds traveling through murky waters, drowning thelistener in its heavy-handed layers of ghostly resonance. "Black Swan's self-titled debut masterpiece is a blissful, dark and dreamy wall of drowningsounds. Surreal, creepy yet beautiful stuff here! For the likes of Thomas Koner, Stars of the Lid, Brian Eno, The Caretaker, and Godspeed You BlackEmperor. Orchestrated drones at it's best." -Asylum "...The music is given the right to exist on its own, as if it had always existed. It stakes its claimin the mind, making the listener a collaborator in a seductive narrative-noire that travels through a hall of horrors and memories, an escort to a finalresting place. One might encounter spirit animals, forgotten lovers, faceless apparitions, leviathan rifts, or a cozy blanket of stars. It is easy to becomecomfortable in the soothing darkness, and when it seems like eternity has arrived, Black Swan pulls the plug." « hide
