Shy, Low - Snake Behind The Sun

Well this is awesome. Post rock has really been having a moment in 2021 and the latest offering from Shy, Low, Snake Behind The Sun is a stunner that really speaks to the talent of the band. This instrumental record is bombastic and fun, with interlocking layers continually proving just how special this band really is. It's a delight to get lost in the magic of this band and the way that they manage to continually one up themselves, showcasing delightful new sides to the sound and painting sonic highways for us all to get lost on. 

One of the things that I find really compelling about this release is the use of melody. They are soaring and powerful, sitting nicely on top of a driving rhythm sction that continually seems to push further and uncover ever brighter horizons. The entire record is quite the journey and as you ride along with the band you see yourself transported through a potent cycle of emotional phases. There is simply so much to sink your teeth into on Snake Behind The Sun and the more tie you spend with it the more clear the scope of this bands achievement is. It's exactly the sort of record to keep listeners fascinated and entranced with the layers of crystal clear sound. 

Snake Behind The Sun is a delicious record that really encourages listeners to come back time and time again. There is a wondrous scope to the release and immersing yourself in it is delicious. This is what post rock was meant to be about, epic soundscapes that seem to splay out further than the eye can see or the ear can hear. It's a record that transcends the genre and which quite frankly any fan of music should be able to enjoy. Shy, Low have outdone themselves here and letting yourself get lost in their efforts is a real privilege.
