Early 2017 is shaping up to be a really exciting start of the year for Singapore.
Post rock band Explosions In The Sky, best known for their best known for their instrumentally cathartic music, will be performing a headlining show at The Coliseum, Hard Rock Hotel. The show is part of the band’s tour to promote their 7th studio album, “The Wilderness”, which is also their first non-soundtrack release in 5 years.
“The Wilderness” explores the infinite unknown, utilising several of the band’s own definitions of “space” (outer space, mental space, physical geography of space) as compositional tools. The band uses their gift for dynamics and texture in new and unique ways – rather than intuitively fill those empty spaces, they shine a light into them to illuminate all the colours of the dark.
From the electronic textures of the opening track to the ambient dissolve of closer “Landing Cliffs”, “The Wilderness” is an aggressively modern and forward-thinking work – one that wouldn’t seem the slightest bit out of place on a shelf between original pressings of English progressive rock band Pink Floyd’s “Meddle” and “Obscured By Clouds”.
