/人◕ ‿‿ ◕人\ Loving post-rock that leaves you to meditate on the everlasting presence of silence. It's a beautiful journey of sound and experience, and "Ellipse" and "Drones" feel like a lovely breath of fresh air... and all is paired up nicely with a very enigmatic album cover that forces you to embrace the atmosphere of their music. Favorite track: Ellipse.

leHenri An enveloping, majestic melancholia.
My top 1 post-rock album up to this day. I wish there were more tracks to this album...
Post-rock des plus solides que j'ai entendus, personnellement mon favori. Une mélancolie grandiose, enveloppante et apaisante.
J'en aurais voulu plus! Favorite track: Aria.

Track Name: Ellipse
Fire where are you
To shape and reshape all anew
Tongues from overseas
Guide me when I'm on my knees

Bring fire on
Track Name: Mirage
Hold on there's a light
The stones still sing
What I've seen from the walls
Head to head in a brawl
I'm throwing in
All that's left of my heart

When storms are raging just hold on
When cloaked in shadows our blood’s still warm

With words running deep
From his lips waters stream
Unto every soul
Riches unmaterial
Come break every stone
Redeem our darkened home
Steady eyes watching still
The breaking dawn behind the hills
Track Name: Ruach
For a second I realize
That I’m holding a hollow dice
And what lies before me doesn't fright
A first sense of a common place
The only wind that illuminates
Folding endlessly before my eyes
Track Name: Holding Rivers
I hold chances in a row
I want to have control
With chances in a row
Track Name: Aria
Worldly crowns will burn
Hierarchies overturn
Hands are holding tight
Keys of death and life

Oh come
Rise with the sun
Oh come
Bleeding one

Track Name: Drones
Sons and daughters, there’s no progress
Songs of hardship reach our hearts
Our scales will fall, we wait for dawn
And hope to break the radio silence
