French to blow this time with very different ideas. In 2010, his debut album, Mélancolie Urbaine, published Netra persuaded genre definitions appear to be already at that time, but now once you move in degrees in deeper waters. Melancholic jazz, black metal, post-rock and trip-hop Combining sheet music, feel free to examine the limit. Experimentalism, despite Netra However, we can create an exciting and incredible journey into the unknown.

The album is the length of the plush 70 minutes divided by 12 pieces. Songs atmosphere is mainly a wistful melancholy, but patchy depressive black metal runttaukset, slightly lighter jazz and rock vedättelyt it all together and entangles electronic music tossed between feeling different directions. Black Metal accounted for there is not given in the large, but it is used more like a means to change tracks. Among accommodate as clean as rääkymislauluakin, the first of which the latter is much better. In fact, the album seems to be currently the singing and the music is not able to concentrate fully. Most of the songs is completely instrumental.

The most interesting songs to myself was relatively unknown trip-hop genre, which mainly a rather slow tempo and machine elements are indulging in a pretty gracefully between jazz, Black Metal as a post rockinkin intermediate terrain. Sometimes the songs slow down almost ambient-like calm in, droop, however, never repeat itself. All of this creates a completely Sørbyenille peculiar sound in the world, the maze is easy to forget for hours, over and over again.

Sørbyen is a brief summing up a successful exploration of the dark area where the music melds genres ignore it any more. The disc is aesthetically very impressive, but also melancholy and is perfect for the dark time of the year. If the experimental, melodic and melancholy are the words in your mind, you should be sure to consult the plate. Signing the album is sure to be one of the finest acquaintances.
