This is the third instalment in Blancmange’s exploration of ambient music, experimental soundscapes and imaginary film soundtracks.
Written and recorded in 2019 and early 2020, Nil By Mouth III flows between the dark, cinematic and dreamlike but always with a subtle sense of atmosphere in the arrangements.
Some moments are lit with an optimistic shimmer, while the darker tracks possess an evocative atmospheric drift, like haunting memories from a distant future . . .
