Alessandra Gismondi and Luca Bandini, the Italian duo better known as schonwald take us through a frozen landscape shrouded in ethereal mist in Dream for the Fall.
There is an ever-present almost omnipotent presence in the music that is best experienced in a dark, chilled room. Low octave synthesizers grind and buzz industriously serving as the bottom layer of which eerie electric guitar washes over distant haunting vocals.
Think Crystal Castles minus the bleepity-bloop and black-washed with early era Cure and you’ll get a sense of the melancholic dreamscape being painted and once caught in the wave, there is no escaping it.
