"Romantically sombre but seductive rather than gloomy, “ Every silver lining has a cloud”, drifts like swift nocturnal stormy clouds from one track into another, subsuming everything in the mix into its blissful, towering soulful radiance that’s impossible not to get lost in. A Gem."
"Dramatic, emotional, melancholic, epic, dynamic shoegazer / post-rock in the spirit of Slint, Flying Saucer Attack, Mogwai, Gybe! and Labradford."
The tone is set immediately with the album opener, “Against all odds,” a lonesome Atlantic gale-blown ode to the wind-swarming of emotion and otherworldliness. And while “A stolen life" truly encapsulates the delicately mournful, tense and dramatic mood that heightens most of the album (unlocking, as such, a panorama of desolate and elemental grandeur with its subdued male vocals and cello), it is with “The leaden sky” that the album reaches its ultimate peak. The track commences with brooding, feverish washes of guitar, then grows into a graceful cinematic soundscape that veers from chaotic to dreaming and back again.
"Where Earth Meets Sky" is a textural piece that envelops the spoken word by American poet Ashley Rugge, who expresses with sensitive words Guillaume and Cyrille thougths. “Backward”, the tenth and final track, is a slow, flowing, hypnotic treated-guitar loop charged with an impending sense of dread, a sullen, doom-laden demeanor that is strangely affecting and utterly enrapturing like a David Lynch slow-motion dream-sequence; it ends the album on a pensive, haunting note.
Every Silver Lining Has A Cloud. Atmospheric. Absorbing. Haunting. Post-Rock.
