Brothers and forgers of ethereal soundscapes, Over Sands, have announced their upcoming self-titled debut EP. Despite their short existence, Over Sands are already gaining positive reviews from critics, with plaudits coming from the likes of The Line of Best Fit for opening release Tune Out, which was followed by a psychedelic cover of the Twin Peaks theme.
Allowing the surrounding environment to flow naturally into their recordings, Over Sands wrote the EP during several weeks isolated in a remote beach house off the English East coast. The hypnotic ebb and flow of the tide – marooning the brothers from the rest of civilisation twice a day – gave inspiration to their debut’s multitude of sounds.
Physical elements of the environment also make an appearance, literally: the vocals of Hounds were recorded in an abandoned World War Two bunker the brothers found nearby, and synthesised field recordings have found their way ontoTwo Cranes and Gyroscope.
The disparate locations and sonic elements come together on Over Sands EP – where wandering synthesisers, shimmering guitars, and celestial vocals, meet drum samples, and bright electronic notes – culminating in a complete form, that ventures into towering walls of sound.
Over Sands’ debut self-titled EP will be released on November 20th world-wide on B3SCI, in digital and limited edition 12″ clear vinyl.
