Glós – Filling The Scars With Light (Digital EP – Intimate Silence)
Genre/Influences: Ambient, cinematographic.
Background/Info: Intimate Silence is a brand-new label devoted to ambient music. The first EP is one by Głós (pronounced ‘Gwos’). This is a Berliner based producer who already released a few previous EP’s.
Content: The EP reveals 3 songs, which sound like exploring ambient fields with a sweet touch of darkness. It’s an intriguing voyage carried by some heavy ambient blasts at more evasive passages. Some passages are pretty cinematographic-minded (cf. “Empathy Keeps Me From Sleeping”).
You now and then will notice extra discrete noises in the background. The global atmosphere remains driven by a mysterious sensation, like an unknown danger lurking from behind the corner.
+ + + : This EP sounds somewhere in between darker ambient productions and pure electronic reverie. There’s certain visual appeal emerging from the production.
– – – : The music is pretty enjoyable although I’m missing an apotheosis.
Conclusion: Głós stands for a different ambient format, which reveals a sweet and fascinating taste, but without a real climax.
Best songs: “Figurant”.
