shield patterns

Quite something else this and if past releases are anything to judge by this could, like last years utterly enchanting Chantal Acda outing, be making a bee line for a top 5 spot in our favourite albums of the year come 2014’s close. But that as they say is then and this is now. Forthcoming on the rather wonderful Gizeh imprint is the debuting full length from Shield Patterns entitled ‘contour lines’. shield patterns pair together the enviable talents of Claire Brentnall and Richard Knox, a collaborative project taking root in 2012 it has since then assumed a graceful maturity and the kind of quietly epic song craft that puts many bands and musicians ploughing similar territories in the shade. For now – while we try to wrangle physical copies of said set from the label for full review here’s the teaser single ’dust hung heavy’. an utterly enchanting experience that tip toes in and out of unworldly shadowy twilights murmured upon a fragile framing of sepia set noir minimalist electronics and seductive ghost light glacial folk apparitions traced upon a finite and bruised neo classicist schooling, which all said should find itself serving as an affectionate ally to that recent set thawed by Snowbird.
