marconi union

different colours

just music


Released: 18th Jun 2012


late night ambient exploration with streaks of black humour & pools of shimmering beauty revealed in their slow undulating groove, drawing comparison to eno, biosphere & sigur ros.

this is the manchester duo's 6th album & the 1st to prominently feature the work of pianist Duncan Meadows, who joined the group initially for live duties & was asked into the fold more permanently in 2010. their richly melodic compositions unfold gracefully with an emotionally evocative sound. Playful & brighter, 'Different Colours' is aptly named & finds Marconi Union shifting the focus from cool introspection to a friendlier, dynamic sound pierced in places by electric guitar & hushed vocals. "an irresistibly warm & seamless journey through post-rock & electronica’s dreamy hinterlands" 4/5 - the skinny.
