Chicago guitarist Trevor Shelly de Brauw recently announced the release of his debut album, Uptown, due out February 10th, 2017. To hype up the first solo release of his 20+ long musical career, Trevor dropped "They Keep Bowing" which you can check out below!
"They Keep Bowing" is a good indication of what to expect off Uptown (released through experimental label, The Flenser), as it is a "collection of power-ambient compositions". Right off the bat you can tell this isn't music to party or dance to. Utilizing various guitar effects and tones, Trevor is able to create vast soundscapes teeming with life for which listeners can zone out, write or drift off to sleep to. He produces a certain calming mood - almost giving you the feeling like you're floating while watching your space ship drift further and further away as you slowly move through a dark, endless void.
With such a beautiful, yet haunting vibe created through layers upon layers of sound and texture, Uptown is a release to look forward to, especially for fans of Explosions in the Sky or This Will Destroy You (minus the instruments of course) or if you're just into soundscapes and easy listening, this is right up your alley.
