Service's return orbit finds them in an acid folk state of mind. They softly churn out cosmic tones that bore directly into the right brain, eliciting a bright reign of psychedelic sprites. Their mystical leanings steer them close to the likes of Sol Invictus, but OS zigs where neo folk zags, giving them a sonic momentum that leads to a much outer part of outer space. This beautifully crafted set smells like moist earth covered in leaves. Orbit Service's mining of ever deeper moods has yielded a subtle treasure that glows like distant sun. The album includes contributions from:

kim g. hansen (antenne)

anna brønsted (our broken garden / efterklang)

elin palmer (crooked fingers/munly and the lee lewis harlots)

edward ka-spel (LPDS)

kirill nikolai (still light)

dennis swanson (day dissolved dream)

esther hernandez (pee pee)
