1774 are a duo from the Netherlands that plays dark ambient and this is a review of their self titled ep which was released by Kalpamantra.
Synths are are dark ambient soundscapes with some influences from neo-classical music as well as a variety of many different musical keys being utilized, while the violins bring an avant garde classical music to the music, as for the drum programming when it is utilized they bring a militant sound to the music, in addition there are some sound effects that bring an experimental edge to the music.
Vocals and songwriting are all absent from this recording with the music being all instrumental, while the song themes are in German and cover the writings of Goethe, as for the production it has a very dark raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion 1774 are a very great sounding hybrid of dark ambient and neo-classical and if you are a fan of this style of music, you should check this band out. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Nachtwamderungen Im Gebrige" and "Von Der Suche Nach Seelenruhe-Wo Das Leben Sterben wird". RECOMMENDED.
