‘Accidental Journey’ is the debut single from As The Spirit Wanes on With Bells Records. As The Spirit Wanes is the solo venture of Dundee based musician and artist Raz Ullah, well known for being an integral member of Jane Weaver’s band (Twisted Nerve Records), and comprising one half of both We Mythical Kings (Little Krak’d Rabbit Records) and cosmic pop duo Art Of the Memory Palace (Static Caravan Records/Fruits de Mer Records), who received critical acclaim in 2016 from Tom Ravenscroft, Andrew Wetherall and Gideon Coe amongst others.
Accidental Journey is a rich audio dream, replete with a drifting tempo track, astral synths and ethereal strings. Recorded exclusively on analogue hardware equipment, including a MOOG MF101 and a Reel to Reel Tape Machine, this electronica masterpiece is redolent of Boards of Canada, Bonobo and Aphex Twin’s ambient work. Complemented by the haunting B-Side ‘Cities in Evolution’ this is a 7-inch record of authentic artistic quality. Cities in Evolution is offers a more dystopian sonic vision, foregoing a rhythm track in favour of rich ambient texture and emotional essence. With Bells Records are excited to present it.
