Another Sky - Life Was Coming Through The Blinds

A glimpse into how Another Sky are a band capable of deftly soundtracking the looming future.

Rating:

South Londoners Another Sky have been releasing a steady stream of singles over the past year, going from strength to strength with each passing nugget. Anchored by lead singer Catrin Vincent’s haunting, androgynous vocals, they take cues from experimental post-rock heroes Talk Talk and Radiohead to create grandiose, intricate soundscapes. The quartet’s new EP is led by track ‘The Cracks’, a paean dedicated to young revolutionary hopefuls trying to make the world a better place than the one they grew up in. Doused in vivid, eerie imagery that blends politically-aware themes of loneliness, anxiety and how to find deeper purpose in an already broken world, the four-track offering is a glimpse into how Another Sky are a band capable of deftly soundtracking the looming future.
