Product Description

Product Description

Long awaited debut album from leading lights of 'nu-gaze' Sennen. Already acclaimed for their expansive and dynamic live performances, the band have developed their instrumental post-rock sound to include serene vocal harmonies, walls of crashing white noise, and disarmingly effective melodies. With comparisons already being made to the likes of Mogwai, Spritualized, My Bloody Valentine and Teenage Fanclub the band have produced an album to rival any of their contemporaries.

From the Artist

"There isn’t a note on that record we recorded and then regretted."

This band have been gigging around Norwich and London for quite a while and it's about time they got an album out.
They have that kind of crescendo building feel that you find in Mogwai and Sigur Ros, but sound different enough to bring something new to that genre. The vocals and crashing guitars mix superbly to give a really good sound.
The stand out track on this album for me is clearly Widows. It's a haunting track that comes to a crashing end that will send a shiver up you.
The only problem, and it is common with bands like this, is that sometimes studio recording fails to grasp the energy of the live set. Although this is not particularly noticeable on this record, I urge you to see this band play live if you can.
I have rated this album 4/5 for the simple reason that although I think this band is excellent, they have the potential to get even better.

I recently discovered Sennen as they were opening for the Japanese post-rock band Mono in the Norich Arts Center. It seemed like a great mix to have a band from Norwich opening for one from Tokyo, so I was sure it was going to be interesting. I'd listened to a few tracks before the show and was excited to see them on the strength of those songs, and the live performance confirmed that they are really something special. Their music maintains a power and intensity seen in the best of post-rock bands, plenty enough to rival the incredible Mono appearing later that evening.
But I don't want to give the impression that Sennen are purely a noise rock act. They combine beautiful pop melodies with the atmospheric use of dynamics and careful restraint of the guitar playing to create something that catches the listeners attention instantly as well as dragging their mind off to a place that only the music can take them.

This album brings a flood of emotional turmoil which Sennen seem to capture so well, from the hopeful "opened up my arms" to the nostalgic "It's not like it used to be". The opening track "I couldn't tell you" is a masterpiece in terms of introducing the depth and sincerity of this record. Sennen have created a beautiful debut album worthy of the likes of Sigur Ros and Mogwai giving birth to a fresh sound of sheer brilliance! The haunting track “widows” is chillingly great which stands out on this record putting this band on-par with its contemporaries and breathing new hope into nu-gaze wave.

Whilst The Telescopes drift off into all kinds of dark places and Kevin Shields plays as a session musician for the Primals, a whole new generation of bands are emerging that have managed to recapture one of the greatest musical movements of the last century. Sennen are easily one of the best bands from the new generation of shoegazing bands.
Named after a Ride song, Sennen have definitely filled a big gap in my record collection as many of the shoegazing bands this century only seem to scrape the surface when it comes to writing a tune, they get the right effects pedals and just don't play the right notes.
Standout tracks for me, the dark morose sounds of 'All The Time', the layers of feedback on 'Widows' and the Teenage Fanclub/Byrds style pop of 'Laid Out'.
Don't be put off by the fact it only has 7 tracks aswell, it still comes in at over 45 minutes long.
