Description:

Doomgaze. Is that a thing? In ancient times "Songs Of Flowers & Skin" might have done time on 4AD, Creation, or even Sarah. Except of course, for the slender demonic tail woven into the melodies, which would have left a smoldering pile of pointy shoes in its wake. Though the tracks here are not metal, there is no lacking of heavy. The songs (yes, songs) simmer to a point just below explosion. Aidan chooses to excavate with atmosphere in lieu of caterwauling electricity, filling the spaces with dark, droning continuos that hang in the air like post-riot tear gas. His cavernous crooning floats just above the oddly addictive slow riffs. This bloody valentine is a beastly beauty that mitigates icy experimentalism with glowing compositions including additions of violin and trumpet that go down just like honey. Meant to be played very, very loud.
