A Dead Forest Index - Antique - (91%),
This review is from: Antique (Audio CD)
A Dead Forest Index are a unique sibling duo from Australia making a totally engrossing music initiating eccentric-isms of independent and generally left-field artistry but on a sound largely rooted in folk-rock.
The vocals come at you in ever building layers, probably performed live using a loop station. At their best these voices create sorrowful pools of pastel shade to just plunge your face in to and have the cold currents of sound fill and cleanse your senses.
Anchoring The Hands is an amazing track which starts almost jovially with a catchy verse and flows into a nice hook in the chorus but earlier in the song than you expect, when the structure would normally continue to progress in a verse/chorus direction, it dissolves with a deep, pulsating, tribal interruption before a harrowingly soulful round of vocals begin.
This is invigorating and exciting stuff, which will grow on you and blossom into something very personal indeed. 'Antique' is an EP that has truly wet my appetite for A Dead Forest Index's debut full length.
