With an impressive debut behind them, British trio Gunship have returned with ‘Dark All Day’ – an album that delves deeper into science fiction. Building upon their analogue sound, the group takes risks with saxophones and deep references to achieve impressive results.
‘Woken Furies’ kicks the proceedings off with a spoken word introduction by Altered Carbon author, Richard K. Morgan, before an attack of dirty bass lines and punchy kick drums drag the track towards melodic synth lines and floating vocals.
Throughout the album, the group display a layered soundtrack, creating atmospheres that dictate the progression of each track. By focusing on an economic range of motifs for each composition, Gunship are able to bring in and out multiple layers on a whim, giving an abundance of sonic changes without losing momentum.
