It’s been a while since we last heard from Majora with the previous track ‘Tidal’ and the newest offering form the Newcastle outfit has upped the game even further with release of ‘Aphotic’. In short…its fantastic! Continue reading Majora – Aphotic (single) 2017
Instrumental prog-rock with a touch of ambience from Brisbane based 3 piece ‘Balloons Kill Babies’. Continue reading Balloons Kill Babies – Illuzia (single) 2017
No way I’m going to do this justice with my limited vocabulary and mere words. Suffice to say it was incredible.

Three tracks does not sound like a lot but when you appreciate just how much James has crammed into these pieces there’s more than enough to chew on for ages. You’d be forgiven for thinking this was just an EP and no more than an interlude before a full length but dig in and you will find a plethora of idea’s and sounds, movement and melody to behold!

This is an instrumental record first, post rock album second. The musicality of the art on display here is better explained as simply beautiful music rather than genre casting it into several neat little boxes which rob you of any freedom to interpret the work for yourself.

Last year ‘Majora’ seemingly burst out of nowhere to deliver an amazing 6 track mini album which completely knocked our socks off. So.. anticipation levels for something new from these Newcastle lads was getting high. Continue reading Majora – Tidal (single) 2016
Here’s what you get when you cross ‘Deftones’ with ‘Explosions in the Sky’!
Heavy ass riffage that feels like it was unwillingly churned up from the depths of a dark and miserable place juxtaposed against melodic and ambient guitar work to lull fairies asleep. Continue reading The Human Instrumentality Project – Daybreak on Solstice (2015)
