Meglamancha returns with a brand new release: Silica.
Their first album 'Soil' was focused on heavy guitar and drums. ("Like mechanical angels being scrapped for parts" - A Jazz Noise)
Follow up 'Megara' combined that sound with a more electronic soundtrack vibe. (a brief respite of sizzling static gives way to another, final immersive storm of crunching, beat laden, multilayered epic drone, wheeling guitar and an awefucked horizon.” - Hear and Now)
Silica is a very different kind of animal.
The 40+ minutes track unfolds with heavy tread and treacle feet.
A slow, lingering soundscape that feels like you're floating in one place, at a vacuum point in time.
Time disolves, only the 'now' remains.
released February 1, 2019
