When you listen to One year On, the beginning of the new album from Solo Collective you feel lost and found. Something in your subconscious gets directly plugged into the piano as the keys unfold, drifting along only to be enhanced via an assortment of strings. What happens next is, For Hazel. And what I love about Solo Collective is the rich, diverse music that they draw from when creating their own sounds. In this case a heady rush of ambience informs the piece. So it continues. The heart-stopping piano of For Mathew. The brutal industrial landscapes of Ripness Is All taunt and tease. Ending beautifully on the Solo Collective version of Holy Island.
Release: June 7
