Neun Welten - The Sea I'm Diving In


Prophecy Productions is really one of those labels who succeed as curators of taste. They are a label who can put out even genres of music I would never normally listen to and make me love them. So I knew that when Nuen Welten's The Sea I'm Diving In hit my inbox that I was in for a good time. Nuen Welten is the sort of potent and highly ambient dark folk band who force you to question what folk music can be and its role in our society, pushing the genre to new heights and guiding the listener through beautiful waves of sound. 

I can't help but to love the beautiful and strangely archaic vibes that Nuen Welten so gleefully curate on this record. The rolling textures of the production, perfectly balancing lush acoustic guitars and gentle synths make for an album that you can't help but want to get lost in. There is something inherently comforting about the way their downtempo vibes ease their way into your heart. Maybe I'm just a sucker for minor key German music but there is something I think transcendent about Nuen Welten. Sure they might be a little bit on the nose now and again, but that's part of what makes this record so fascinating. 

The Sea I'm Diving In offers infinite possibilities and encourages you to, well, dive in. This is a band who are not afraid of the beauty of their sound and who are going to work their way into your mind time and time again with endless and romantic compositions. When this albums comes to its tear jerking conclusion you can't help but to feel that you witnessed a truly great piece of art unfolding before you. Nuen Welten are masters of their craft and will leave you with a smile on your face and passion burning in your heart.
