Perpetual Bridge - Astral Departures [Everest Records Promo]

Released via the Swiss label Everest Records on October 28th, 2k22 is "Astra Departures", the sophomore album release for Nadia Peter's solo project dubbed Perpetual Bridge. Over the course of six tracks and roughly 41 minutes total runtime the Swiss-Italian composer presents a very distinct and oftentimes stripped down sonic aesthetic remininiscent of both space-themed Ambient x ChillOut sound as well as the harmonic, yet experimental and at the time groundbreaking Cosmic Synth compositions laid down by the likes of Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream and other like-minded pioneers, pairs this vibe with sparse, expertly sculpted Electronica grooves at times whereas tunes like "Paradoxical Propeller" gravitate towards a warm, organic and all embracing Downtempo approach, "Flying Stones" even dabbles with a Trance-like floatiness suitable for late night dancefloors and "Abstract Possibilities" focuses on deep space harmonies in combination with complex, skeletal rhythms and therefore provides one of the best - and classic - Electronica tunes we've heard in a while. Highly recommended. Go check.
