Track Of The Day :: Sennen - Still Dark

Words: Linn Branson

There is something beautiful, dark and compelling about this new track - and predominantly, about the vocals of Laurence Holmes  - from the ex-Norwich, now London-based Sennen that makes up for the siren drone 'thump-thump-thump' which it is carried on.

Maybe we're missing a crucial point in 'Still Dark' (which was mastered by Sonic Boom, aka Peter Kember of Spacemen 3/Spectrum), but all that we can say is listening to four minutes of it, becomes a tad wearing. Would be interesting to hear it without this particular metronomic component, or at least faded out after the first 90 seconds.

Electronica quartet Sennen returned last year after a lengthy hiatus since releasing their 'Lost Harmony' album, and certainly 'Still Dark' makes them a band you want to hear more of.

'Still Dark' is taken from the album 'First Light', out on February 26 through Indelabel.
