Vinyl LP pressing. Self-produced and recorded over a period of two years, the debut full-length album from California duo Some Ember is the culmination of a range of experience for these two wanderers. Some Ember is rich with meaning, sonic creativity, and emotional energy, a striking evolution from previous releases. Here, cold synthesizers and harsh industrial beats dominate the A-side, while swirling drone and organic percussion characterize the unique second half. The exceptional voices of Dylan Travis and Nina Chase balance the record, their melodies anchoring things firmly in the pop realm. Thematically, Some Ember explores the emotional contours of the perilous, exhilarating era in which it resides: channeling the free, open skies of California; cataloguing the oppressive grip of technological obsession; the deep contradictions inherent in life under the shadow of a crumbling post-colonial empire.
