pat moon’s 2016 debut don’t hide from the light is proving to be one of the decade’s most enduring records. kate davis’ spectral synth soundscapes are equally perfect for muggy summer evenings and bone-chilling winter mornings, the rare album that feels intimately applicable to one’s surroundings year-round.
later this spring, davis will release a follow-up, romantic era. beyond title and timeframe, information is scant, but the announcement was made in tandem with the release of a new single; “medieval spells” evolves methodically, a cavernous choir slowly layered over murky synth beds comprising its positively haunting architecture. it’s a fascinating preview of romantic era, one that further blurs the line between meditative and hypnotic with every repeated listen. hear the track below.
