about

Graceful, minimal ambient synth and instrumental pop forms brought to light by Chris Owen aka Burning Pyre. Following a run of beautiful works on Vienna Press and Perfect Aesthetics, BP up's the contrast and resolution for this Opal debut.

'Compassion as Commodity' opens with a breathy utterance of cloudy synth intercut with chordal tremulance. A scene set of rose-tinted beauty and hopeful approach. 'Eros' delicate high-frequency work and miniscule details are the audial equivalent of blood in a moth wing. The two collaborative tracks with Canadian Rifles and Real Terms introduce powder brush beats ('Into Water') and dislocated and haunting voice and brass ('My Arms Are Open'), the latter gesturing toward a slowed and stunted Fennesz.

"United Angels" is simple and pure in it's approach but the results are ultimately gestalt. It's gorgeously sad, meditative and hummable in the same breath.
