The Doomed Bird of Providence
Collision/Detection v7 Front and Follow

Article written by Michael H - Jan 8, 2013

collision_detection_v7.jpg
This is another great EP release from Front and Follow’s Collision/Detection series. The four tracks here are intended to soundtrack either short films or excerpts, but function perfectly well without visual accompaniment. ‘In the Terror of the Moment’ sounds like a nautical take on Godspeed’s ‘Moya’; it swells and recedes with a mournful despair, a violin sweeping over droning accordion and chiming guitar. ‘Safety at Sea’ is a sweetly waltzing miniature full of tired drunken grace. ‘Seabound’ is a stomping, hand clapping dirge that periodically faints away into shivering violin strings. ‘The Wounded Platelayer’ is broodingly atmospheric, full of clanking ambience. The band effortlessly captures the Constellation Records sound of doomed futility with occasional pause for moments of hopeful reflection.

After their great debut album ‘Will Ever Pray’, this addition to the ever brilliant Collision/Detection series promises much for their follow up due later this year.
