Genre : Instrumental post-rock / Electronic
Seasons (pt. II), this time dedicated to summer, strikes back with the same feeling, meaning ethereal and dreamy electronic-influenced, instrumental post-rock. However, it doesn't mix as many influences or catchy melodies than spring-oriented release, and thus gives the feel there's not as much inspiration as the previous EP. But well, maybe it goes with the fact that summer isn't as rich as spring in terms of emotions, is it? Anyway, this doesn't mean there's nothing good here, even if it's shorter than the first one, there are still chilling and calming parts, not to forget some more energic sounds at times, still done in a way that suits the theme, with perfectly arranged drums and guitar distortions. Pianos are still shining throughout the four tracks, definitely worth a listen!
Check out For the shimmer of highways for pianos and other chilling sounds, and Our storm for its intense ending. And follow The echelon effect on Facebook. Seasons (pt. II) is available as a free listen and download on bandcamp.
