This Sunday, September 23, Slovenian post-rock outfit Shadow Universe will officially release their debut full-length, Speaking for Clouds. Weaving together elements of space rock, krautrock, and ambient music with post-rock and post-metal’s emphasis on tension and release, Shadow Universe‘s unique take on the genre is both towering and ethereal. As made evident by the forthcoming Speaking for Clouds; an equally entrancing and thunderous affair that will appease anyone who likes their music to be a bit cinematic.
In preparation for its impending release, we at Svbterranean bring you an exclusive stream of the album’s massive title track. The nearly seven-minute composition begins with brooding, palm-muted riffs that explode into a wall of swirling sound populated by crushing guitars, textural atmospheres, and synth-generated symphonic melodies. For nearly seven-minutes, listeners are bound to be lost in its hypnotic soundscapes. Check it out for yourself below.
Speaking for Clouds can be purchased here.
