'a subtly-affecting midpoint between balmy electronica and somnambulant ambience' The Thin Air
'powerful vocals' - Nialler9
"conducting lush wisps of electronic synths and beats through the air like a multi-coloured potion of neon cloud" - Remy's Music & Film
The Soft Animal
A follow-on from Idiot Songs, The Soft Animal is a new departure, in essence an ambient first-person narrative - a collection of new age noir, The Soft Animal features meditative atmospherics alongside folk-tinged tales of redemption. The story of the record is an intriguing one involving oceanic themes, dramatic rescues, glimpses of the fantastical, and our struggles with serpents of many types, real and imagined.
An album of refined atmospherics that draws from the things that matter most, 'The Soft Animal' by Nocturnes is out now on Bluestack Records and Urchin Music. 'The Soft Animal' can be purchased here while digital copies are available from Pearse's site as well as the usual digital retailers.
The Soft Animal has featured on BBC Radio Ulster, RTE, Today FM as well as on Jason Kramer's show on KCRW.
