Our Ceasing Voice - When The Headline Hit Home

Two words: post and rock. Our Ceasing Voice, an Austrian four piece, tick all the post rock boxes and yet also seek in places to defy genre clichés and seek their own musical pathways. There’s a lot of Mono and Explosions In The Sky in this album and yet there’s a drive for the band to develop their own sound here too. Structurally we’re dealing with music that builds from simple, often acoustic, roots before reaching crescendos stacked with intense guitars and drums. From this template, the band have added piano, synthesisers and shockingly, for a post rock band, some vocals. This has resulted in a captivating album, one that is a rich listening experience with both light and shade. If you explore deeper into these shadows, you will be rewarded with a mournful resonance that is both sustaining and affecting.
