With previous releases on Origo Sound and Beatservice Records, Norwegian duo Circular signs here a strong and highly anticipated fourth album. [ Substans ] unfolds as a collection of micro ambient tales, journeys into intricate and multi-layered soundscapes.
The band thought this album as a sonic line tangent to realms as opposite as floating atmospherica and industrial clunks, a deep kaleidoscopic glide through reverberated guitar riffs, uplifting grooves
and environmental ambient.
Ardent ISDN enthusiasts will notice the impression Future Sound Of London's avant-garde electronica left on Bjarte Andreassen and Jostein Dahl Gjelsvik. Indeed the band claims influences as diverse as Biosphere, Boards of Canada, Sun Electricand saw this album as one opportunity to acknowledge landmarks in their history of music encyclopaedia.
Moreover, [ Substans ] reveals the work of a collective of photographers and designers. The artists joined by Christin Vaag, Torje Bjellås, Øyvind Veberg and Christoffer Furnes reflected on the album echoes in the vast Scandinavian territories
Mixed by Peter Andreas Nordenstam and mastered at Ginger Hill Studio by Huby Sea.
To propell you into the band's specific world of sounds, we offer you "Little girls eat chocolate". Extract from the album [ Substans ]. Perfect song for an after Easter period, isn't?
