RayRay already wrote about the forthcoming In Tall Buildings album, and it’s my turn to throw my hat into the ring after the band recently released this new video for “Curtain.” Steady electronic pulses serve as the song’s central backbone, while you’ve got to pay careful attention to Erik Hall’s voice to hear the switches from verse to chorus; these are subtle changes that beg a careful ear, as you’re likely easily entranced by the soft quality Hall presents. Near the track’s end, a discordant noise indicates a raise in volume and power, leaving you with an emphatic emotional punch before fading to black. Akinetic will drop on March 2nd via Western Vinyl.
Erik Hall and his project known as In Tall Buildings sure seem to receive a lot of positive praise over here on ATH. We’ve always been fans of the tunes over the years so one can imagine the excitement when I heard that new music was finally on the way. This track, “Beginning to Fade”, with accompanying video directed by Natalie Bergman, features a truly peaceful and airy take on songwriting. After a few listens, you can start feeling yourself melt into the melody and the groove of the song.
In Tall Buildings will release Akinetic on March 2nd via Western Vinyl.
