Gideon Wolf – Near Dark
Somewhere between now and the future, a hunt begins in the blue neon space before darkness. The near dark.
Gideon Wolf’s new album lives in the headlights on that empty road, sweeping the distant violence at high speed. A soundtrack to the escape from a Ballardian dystopia.
‘Near Dark’ sees the duelling elements of Tristan Shorr’s musical output merge into one; prophetic ambience driving headlong into rhythm and distortion.
Think Ben Frost and Max Richter colliding in a futuristic urban landscape:
– “A vertical Kubrick event horizon that is equal parts Nils Frahm and Oren Ambarchi” (Cyclic Defrost).
