Seoul’s I Become a Shade

seoul - i become a shadeMontreal synth-tickling trio Seoul prunes the roadside foliage providing for a picturesque, velvety drive through shady climes. I Become a Shade is the band’s debut LP, a seamless merging of the organic and the ambient, a sombre ride that never falls into despair. We feel as if we are cruising at high speeds on petrol fumes alone or perhaps aboard a Maglev train. It is a solid album throughout, all tracks hitting the mark, whether they pause for a bit of reflection or decide to get a bit funky. Ethereal closer “Galway” is a nice bonus treat.  iTunes
