PLYXY - Gloryland EP [Hallow Ground Promo]

A new one on the Swiss label Hallow Ground, released on November 16th, 2k18, is PLYXY's "Gloryland EP", the latest musical outing by Russian producer migrated to NYC Ros Knopov. Originally being a strictly limited tape and now available on vinyl as well the five track piece opens with "It Will Be Beautiful", a deep crackly take on floating Ambient beauty whereas the title track "Gloryland" follows on a path of crisp, floating calm evoking memories of an undisturbed, untouched winter landscape after an overnight snow fall. Furthermore we see "Ungod" unfold in a calm, yet dramatic manner, breaking off into icy, dubbed out pieces in the second half of the tune, "KatYusha" fuses highly melancholic Ambient with a kind of (Neo)Classical string section and the final "March Of Youth" floats along a blurry, crackling and meandering river of tonal shifts alongside illusions of ghostly whispering voices and musical surprises which are taking a turn towards the noisier, warped side of the electronic spectrum.
