Anyone could be forgiven for already tiring of the 'recorded during the pandemic' back story, but our money is on the fact we've barely scratched the surface of what was and still is being made in and among isolation, paranoia, and social awkwardness. In this case, though, the setting is relevant for more reasons than lyrical themes and catalysts alone, with A Mountain of One managing to record this latest track over Skype, Mo Morris checking in from Bali and Zeben Jameson in London.
The process is as unique as the track itself, which is all we ever expected from A Mountain. It's melodic without being twee, adventurous without running off into such obscure soundscapes the listener is left wondering about their taxi home. It's half standing in the electronic ultra world outfits like The Orb took us to, and yet firmly placed in the live alt-rock-pop-whatever realm. It's special stuff.. (Mint / New)
