Sublamp – In Our Hiding Voice

Genre: ambient, experimental, minimal

From the album page: “In Our Hiding Voice is centered around the kind of listening you might engage in whilst hiding from something or someone, perhaps hiding in empty buildings, underground tunnels or dark rooms in abandoned houses… The initial intention was to create an album based around warm and fuzzy guitar tones but it was after Connor had watched Tarkovsky’s ‘Stalker’, that he began to explore darker and scratchier territory. Connor kept returning to his imagined visuals of children playing hide and seek in a decayed world like that of ‘Stalker’ and it is through this inspiration that the murky textured drones on offer throughout this album were constructed.
