The Long Bright Dark EP (Audio Gourmet)

by Polaroid Notes



'The Long Bright Dark' is Polaroid Notes' debut EP for Audio Gourmet, with four improvised piano-led tracks. The pieces traverse icy effects-drenched notes, subtle field recordings and swirling synth drones. The EP was recorded in a two day period just after Christmas 2014 and was inspired by a German book called 'Atlas der abgelegenen Inseln'. This translates to Atlas Of Remote Islands in English and the book features 50 short stories accompanied with 50 maps of remote islands. The blurb reads '50 islands, where I never was and never will be' and is a fitting picture for your mind as you listen to 'The Long Bright Dark'. Thoughts of vastness, despair transience and hope will flicker as you traverse this all too brief journey.

'The Long Bright Dark' precedes the full album 'Sea Shores' which is due out this spring on Audio Gourmet's sister label Tessellate Recordings. For now, enjoy this free introduction to Polaroid Notes.

A big thanks to Harry Towell!
