HWM (Malaysia) - - THINK -

When it comes to the post-rock genre of mu­sic, English band 65daysof­static has had more than a decade to hone their craft. The ex­per­tise of the in­stru­men­tal group is more than ev­i­dent on their sixth and most re­cent al­bum Wild Light.

Start­ing off with a clear warn­ing “No one knows what is hap­pen­ing, There is a lot of dan­ger out there ... OK” on the open­ing track Heat Death In­fin­ity Split­ter, Wild Light yanks the lis­tener into a des­o­late, de­spon­dent, post-apoc­a­lyp­tic sound­scape and the jour­ney con­tin­ues as the al­bum plays on.

Artful use of noise and am­bi­ent gui­tars are heav­ily fea­tured to cre­ate the gloomy at­mos­phere of the record. But songs like Prisms, with its syn­co­pated, al­most club-ready beat and Safe Pas­sage with its del­i­cate pi­ano melody add va­ri­ety to the mix as well as keep Wild Light fresh. If you want to delve into the post-rock genre, you can start with Wild Light by 65 days of static.
