This review is from: Sand (Audio CD)
The reason I bought 'Sand' was because I really like North Atlantic Oscillation. I was fairly intrigued to hear what the solo work of NAO's singer would sound like. Perhaps not surprisingly, it's NAO-ish. The vocal sound is obviously going to be similar, but there's also the largely synth-heavy sound of the music. However, I think it has a slightly more commercial sound than NAO. enough for this solo album, to be able to stand as a distinct work and not be viewed as the third album the band didn't make.
Sand is a musical treat which improves with every listen. Undoubtedly this piece of work will not reach a wide audience which is a real musical crime. Hats off to the Kscope label for continuing to support these artists who are actually able to put together music that is experimental without being off the wall, and for allowing their artists the freedom to go where they want to within their craft.
Almost impossible to pigeon-hole (and why would you want to), but if you like neo-progressive synth-laden melodic music, then I don't think you'd be disappointed with Sand (or indeed NAO).
