Marta Mist - Eyes Like Pools [Sound In Silence 097]

The Greek Ambient staple Sound In Silence expands its artist roster effective of December 12th, 2k22 with "Eyes Like Pools" which marks the very first album release by the Bradford, UK-based collective known as Marta Mist on the label. With Gavin Miller a.k.a. Worriedaboutsatan and Sophie Green as core members the group caters a five track spanning sonic effort rolled out over the course of approx. 38 minutes, starting on a dreamy tip with the cascading harmonic piano sequences of "Godspeed, Little Doodle" which are surprisingly falling silent without any warning followed by "Always On", a well melancholic and yearning Ambient affair built upon a base of ominous bass drones nicely contrasted by sustained violins and ethereal pianos. With "Lie On Your Side" Marta Mist are catering a panoramic take on calm and comforting (Neo)Classical score arrangements for perfectly romantic moments before "I've Drawn You A May" amalgamates washed out pads, yearning background guitars and echoes of Clicks'n'Cuts-oriented rhythm signatures whilst the final cut "We've Business To Attend To" brings forth a slow moving stream of padded harmonies with a hint of rainy sunday afternoon melancholia for a closing. If both Ambient and (Neo)Classical arrangements are your thing this one is defo one to check out.
