Tessera Skies - Milieu

This is still only the second publicly released track by the trio - the first was Simon 'Bella Union' Raymonde's track of 2012, which is some way to start - but they're already carving something of a shimmering ambient space for themselves. Produced by Nick Mason off that Pink Floyd as part of the Roundhouse 30/30 project in conjunction with EMI and Generator, and to be released on its tie-in compilation on 14th February (a proper, different single follows in March) it builds gradually on tremulous piano lines and delicately self-questioning existential musings before lifting off completely from its morrings into jazz drums and a soaring self-contained grandiosity without having to add that much more instrumentation, all proving to confirm our great hopes for their year ahead.
