The echelon effect - Seasons (pt. I) [EP]

Genre : Instrumental post-rock / Electronic

The echelon effect sets a calming, quiet, chilling atmosphere using post-rock elements alongside electronic ones, some clever and interesting drums, and no vocals at all. This recipe proves to be efficient in Seasons (pt. I), first EP of a project that should include four, hence its name. This one is dedicated to spring, and offers a very refreshing, pleasant, ethereal listen. Merging post-rock and electronics at best, with some calming pianos, subtle distorted guitars, background drums and ambient sounds, it also avoids falling into happy feelings, thus keeping an important part of melancholy, and features a very warm sound that makes this work a little masterpiece of beauty. A top-notch record for people looking for calming, melancholic, yet beautiful and hope-carrying melodies.

Check out Your first light my eventide and Handing over to summer, come on. And follow The echelon effect on FacebookSeasons (pt. I) is available as a free listen and download on bandcamp.
