When you’re a trio, everything flows naturally. The downside is : you have to know where you’re headed …

Like every ambitious act, Dawnshape took some time finding it’s right balance. Only the hazy guitars are left from their 1st draft “We Couldn’t Seize A Bit Of Truth” (2007 – LostChildren), and the pastoral atmosphere has turned into a fierce forest. “Sparse Prism” shows the band delivering subtle and instant songs, without falling into the elitist trap : 5 tracks written with a sense of density, opposing simple vocal melodies, to reach as many catchy moments as pure experimentation.

On “Sparse Prism”, the vocals lead a comfort and clear way through the depths and the fog of the songs : a double reading which holds the record both in the daylight and the underground, depending on your vision.

And an accurate perception of what Dawnshape is today : a characterful 3 piece, wearing a rough silhouette with refined ideas. A description reminding of Chokebore, Slint, as much as Liars or Honey For Petzi. « hide
