Released: 27 Mar 2019
Style: Dark Ambient, Modern Classical, Neo-Romantic, Experimental
Day Before Us is an influential melodic dark ambient project currently active under a duet form and whose style borders graceful neoclassical tones, oneiric soothing textures and chilling soundscapes. A number of albums have been published on well-noted indie labels and the project occasionally gives life performances in a wide variety of contexts.
In these new pieces Philippe Blache and Natalya Romashina are embarking in a musical journey of immediate expressive moods, oftenly mystical ,exalted, animated by a tragic and existential breath, touched by a seraphic sense of poetry and guided by poignant emotional stories. Lead singer Natalya Romashina provides achingly beautiful singing parts with poetical lyrics which favor the aesthetic of suggestion and a tremendous sense of musical fluidity. Those evocative, virtuosic lyrical components communicate with the invocatory, litanous and harmonious qualities of Philippe Blache’s instrumental compositions. « Ode à la nuit d’ombre » is an album of staggering beauty where all pieces come together organically.
