Mountains among us - Away with words [EP]

Genre : Instrumental post-rock

Away with words is, in my opinion, one of the best underground post-rock EP that came out this year. Tagging it post-rock is actually not enough, as those three songs take their roots into different influences and set different atmospheres. Introducing with slow minimalistic pianos, it quickly changes to a rich guitar-driven track. Melodies and riffs are totally stunning on that part, moving along on relaxing drums and ambient background lines including quiet drones. A serious highlight that ends by switching to a droning dark-ambient track, with spoken samples that set quite of a urban atmosphere. Although minimalistic, this ending fits perfectly, creating a subtle melancholic side. An EP that beautifully succeeds into setting diverse atmospheres and musical genres in quite a short time, making for an incredibly rich release!

Check out the main songs, In light bring us closer (shortened) and Still. And follow Mountains among us on Facebook. Away with words is available as a free listen and download on bandcamp.
