I BREAK HORSES
boasting vast walls of widescreen synths, deep pools of warmly melancholic melodies & maria linden's fantastically ethereal vocals wafting over it all, this record's dense, shimmering atmosphere will not be resisted by lovers of brooding dream-pop.
As she watched a collection of favourite films (sound muted) & made her own soundtrack sketches, her sonic workouts gradually evolved into this intimate & sublimely expansive return that sets its own pace with the intuitive power of a much-loved movie. &, as its title suggests, its sumptuous sound worlds – dreamy mellotrons, haunting loops, analogue synths – & layered lyrics crackle with immersive dramatic tensions on many levels. Fans of beach house, death & vanilla, cocteau twins & the moodier end of the goldfrapp catalogue will find much to adore here. “a vivid & spacious cinematic world” album of the week – line of best fit.
