UK-based post-metal outfit Latitudes invites you to join an immersive music journey within the gorgeous melancholia infused melodic grandeur of the new full length “Part Island” which for the first time in the band’s career features captivating vocals on every track.
In the beginning “Underlie” will conquer your heart with the poetic themes, the understated piano melodies and the delicate arpeggios accompanied by exquisite emotive vocals while later the whole instrumentation takes over to generate a darker rhythmic momentum.
On “Moorland Is The Sea” the dreamy nature of post-metal always feels prominent through charming atmospheric arrangements and sophisticated guitar melodies that often evolve into significantly heavier doom tinged rhythmic patterns yet never overlook the irresistible nostalgic vibes.
Like the rest of the album “Dovestone” can trigger an emotional tumult as distorted guitars use familiar blackened dynamics to craft a cohesive rhythmic structure with the right dosage of darkened grooves firmly supporting the intricate melodic & atmospheric tapestries adorned by heartfelt vocals.
The title track takes you to a majestic yet desolate sonic realm offering a multitude of mesmerizing melodic textures, fragile harmonies and a lovely introspective vocal delivery that will continue to evoke a profound sense of melancholy through the fascinating tranquil guitar phrases as well as the dramatic & heavier rhythmic crescendos.
What Latitudes have created with “Part Island” is an absolutely enchanting collection of songs that have the power to move the listeners and showcases an impressive mature songwriting approach that benefits also from the expression of sincere emotions through music and words.
