'Spacebound Apes' is the sixth studio recording from Neil Cowley Trio; a concept album that weaves a glorious soundtrack of breathtaking music around a magical, thought-provoking tale.
Hypnotic passages create heart-pounding suspense while sweet, whispered themes create heart-shattering empathy. Bold, bombastic tunes create drama, and in a departure from the trio's usual acoustic setting, electronics orchestrate desolation and despair.
Widely acclaimed as a dazzling composer, Cowley demonstrates his flair for bold, dynamic, emotional music with cinematic themes that has an enormously broad appeal. The trio have, over their ten year history built a reputation as being one of the genres most captivating live bands performing in a variety of genre-crossing settings.

The album provides a wonderful journey with every instrument sounding crystal clear. The songs themselves have huge depth.
Some musicians want to fill every gap with an instrument. This trio use silence in a very clever way and hence the album sounds very dynamic. When the strings kick in with the piano it is truly magical.
I would love to see these songs being played out live!
