Ritornell – Aquarium Eyes (2013)

Posted by on June 12, 2013 with No Commentsas

RIAcoustic and electronic sounds merge on»Aquarium Eyes«. Paying great attention to detail, Ritornell recorded at various locations (the studio of Patrick Pulsinger being one of them). The results are gently woven into their very own world of sound. Defamiliarized by subtle electronic manipulation, instruments such as piano, double bass, vibraphone, kalimba, and accordion develop a surprising life of their own, only to be consequently swallowed up by the hissing and buzzing of electronic devices.Gleaming multi-layered electro-acoustic drones, isolated organic sounds, and sophisticated textures complete the intricate arrangements.

After hearing the rip-roaring ‘London Bound’ and it’s pummelling concoction of 80s guitars and gung-ho percussion, there were many who leapt to keyboards crying “C-86! C-86!” in regards to Leeds indie-pop quartet Just Handshakes (sans the cutesy ‘(We’re British)’ for those who were familiar with their previous incarnation). Given, it is jangly, shambly and there […]
