New music from Glasgow's No Arrival always comes veiled in delicious secrets. A musical maverick in his genre, the escapism and intrigue offered through electronic hues of genuine sound reverberate through an evolving entourage of albums. The third has just been issued for pre-order on the giganous Bricolage to which three tracks of ten are reverently released for our enjoyment and appraisal. Glasgow is fast becoming an international treasure for the quality of its musical culture with independent and mould-breaking shapes aptly becoming archetypes of their own.
First track Godspeed opens with vibrant depths captured within resonant drums. They slosh in a talkative motif as sonic architecture forms synonymic scatters in the wake of tone. Dashing snares then collapse from invisible heights to join the flow as tributaries rise to meet graceful rivers. The evocative progression leans in with rousing bass that begins to slenderly fathom among the joining pressure-points. An immediacy within the rhythm keeps us attentive as the atomising concepts of rolling thunder course within sweeping haars that crumble inland.
