TUNE Astral Cloud Ashes - Too Close to the Noise Floor
Debut single. An interest in Astral Travel and the non-fiction of Perth based Australian author Robert Bruce are the inspiration for "Astral Cloud Ashes"
As the creative outlet of Antony Walker; "Astral Cloud Ashes" has developed over 2015/2016 from bedroom alt-rock into more expressive and dynamic multi layered arrangements. The songwriter works [for the most part] alone crafting polyrhythmic alternative tuning riffs strung out over 3/4 or 5/4 drum arrangements to form the more esoteric edge of the music. Meanwhile a great deal of it is direct lyrically driven pop-rock / indie-rock, sometimes featuring the only other member of the band Jason Neil.
Some of the slower songs have been likened to Boards of Canada; and 80's goth rockers The Cure.
