Beautiful music to comfortably soundtrack the highs and lows of everyday life.
As music lovers we will be the first to admit that on hearing new music you love there is an overwhelming desire to crow from the rooftops, share with friends and generally enthuse with much gusto about the sheer brilliance of a new discovery. Those Who Remain from New Zealand based Stray Theories is one such album that I must urge you to seek out. Combining Eno-esque ethereal synth work with piano, this is cinematic ambience at its very best.
Delicate piano work forms the backbone to the majority of the tracks with additional production providing subtle, complimentary melodies and layering. Epic and pensive, uplifting yet introspective, Those Who Remain is quite simply beautiful music to comfortably soundtrack the highs and lows of everyday life.
With a mastering sheen from Taylor Deupree this is a release I cannot recommend highly enough—one for fans of Nils Frahm, Hammock and the quieter moments of Jon Hopkins.
