New Music of the Day – LVI : Orchids – Kaleidophone

11392987_10153353025448828_9052768857105440722_nProving that sometimes the biggest impact doesn’t necessarily come from the loudest or most jarring sounds (metallers take note) Orchids is happy to meander unobtrusively through the back of your mind, leaving subliminal imprints on the brain. It melds subtle cinematic soundtrack qualities into spiralling atmospherics, uses unconventional breakdowns to disrupt the flow, half registered spoken word and a synth washed platform on which to build its understated creation.
