It’s been a little bit since I last reviewed Apolline d’Ash’s Waiting EP. I was happy to have a chance to hear more from this artist.
Electric piano, whispering shakers, theremin-like backing harmony, a shuffling rhythm… ‘Candeur’ feels like the slow-motion movement of outer space. After a moment, sinking or falling into softness, this really beautiful bell sequence comes in, gradually growing louder. I love it! It begins to sound like a shallow stream, or a sink with water drips.
‘Vision’ starts off with very modular, plangy synthesizer sequences. There’s a lovely, subtle 808 pulse, then these wondrous synth horns come in! This is gorgeous, something to watch the stars to. The previous sounds become absent in a section of pure pad bliss. They return, and added is a nice, smooth bass synth.
Oh yeah. Get this one for sure:
