To Destroy A City

[Release page] Offering inspired post-ambient travels through mystic audio blurs, To Destroy A City‘s self-titled debut for n5MD is a warm and inviting foray through life. Crossing the subdued (and often time-stretched) qualities of Syntaks and the lively acrobatics of Run_Return, what separates TDAC is the spacious connection and subtle interactions between each piece. Telling a solum story of reflection and all-around good times, emotive synth flurries and a wash of shoegazed delirium stand out clearly. This Chicago-based trio definitely irons out frustrations in the form of well-lit soundwaves on their self-titled affair.

Hidden in tangled corridors one can find nostalgic sonic treasures intermixed with classical foundations. And it is within these opaque discoveries, over repeated listens, that allows memories to migrate and develop their own permutations. In the end, though, how does TDAC differ in approach from the swarm of like-minded operators? Perhaps what can be learned during these eight sparks of light is the significance of ripping through the ever-present sound halos on offer; a mixture of raw, natural and organic music-telling and the creation of undefined visions yielding unique results for each pair of ears.

Letting ambience and strains of shoegaze fall into a field of atmospheric swells, To Destroy A City will adhere to those interested in the simple complexities of everyday life; a veritable collection of instrumental (and monumental) music that teases the palette regardless of any preconceived genre leanings.

To Destroy A City is out now on n5MD. [Release page]
