It’s a Sunday afternoon and I’m sat on my sofa eating copious amounts of Pringles (standard) whilst listening to L-Space’s latest single “Suneaters”. It’s their first single to be released via the label Last Night From Glasgow.
First of all, a MASSIVE congrats to the band for getting signed to a label who fell in love with them after hearing their song “Space Junk” [See our review here].
If you’ve read my reviews before you know that I’ve reviewed them a few times before and I am DEFINITELY a fan. This new single is no different. It’s all about a better future, which I think we all dream of in the current climate.
I am a huge fan of ambient music AND post-progressive instrumental rock, so this song really strikes a chord (no pun intended) with me. The combination of slow synths, mixed with piano and beautifully soothing vocals draw you into the song. Suddenly it changes, those components are still there, but there’s a bit more of a beat to it. Suddenly, a dramatic change, the guitars kick in and drive the song to its climax until they fade away into the black. This amazing single also comes with two (yes TWO) B-Sides about comets and living outside time.
It is a truly breathtaking and mesmerizing piece of work from such talented and wonderful musicians.
You can get it/listen to it here:
Their album will be coming out on vinyl in September and they have a second single scheduled for May, so we don’t have to wait too long to hear what they have next for us. Yay!
