Another Sky – ‘Life Was Coming In Through The Blinds’ EP

0


Another Sky’s new  EP ‘Life Was Coming In Through The Blinds’ showcases the bands bold and uncompromising approach to making music. It genuinely sounds like nothing else that’s out there at the moment. Sure they might get compared to the likes of Radiohead in terms of their mindset to not be constrained by expectation.  And yeah it’s not totally delusional to reference the likes of Portishead, Massive Attack, The Cocteau Twins, even The Cure but as we’ve previously mentioned (here) they don’t really sound like any of the aforementioned artists.

The EP contains their two previous singles, the wonderful  ‘Apple Tree‘ and  ‘The Cracks’ alongside the EP’s title track and ‘ I Don’t Hate You’

The title track is probably their most disorientating track to date, and it does take a few listens to actually grasp it, it’s a swirling sonic soundscape that completely envelopes the senses. The EP finishes with the darkly brooding cinematic ‘ I Don’t Hate You’ which kind of sums up the Ep’s ethos which focuses on resilience and celebration in the darkest of times, loosely inspired by ‘The Wisdom Of No Escape’, by Pema Chodron. It also represents the next stage in Another Sky’s development as they continue to push the boundaries, challenges the listener’s expectations and in doing so make a sound that is uniquely their own
