Portugal's Aires have returned with another recording with the music this time being an instrumental mixture of experimental, drone and dark ambient and this is a review of their 2015 ep "Fantsma" which was released by Bad Panda Records.
A very dark sounding drone starts off the ep along with some elements of ambient and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the songs never use any songwriting or vocals while spoken word parts can be heard at times and the music starts getting more experimental and avant garde after awhile.
Elements of ambient and electronic can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording as well as a brief use of psychedelic style sounds while the synths bring in a very dark and atmospheric feeling when they are utilized and all 3 of the tracks sound very different and diverse from each other.
Aires creates another dark ambient recording t hat is very atmospheric and melodic while also keeping around the done and experimental elements of the previous recordings and getting the music mostly instrumental and the production sounds very dark and r aw.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Aires and if you are a fan of dark ambient and drone, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Fantasma II". 8 out of 10.
