Gang Colours – 'Invisible in Your City' album review
With its mushy, overwrought mix, Will Ozanne's follow-up is thoroughly sleep-inducing
Laying grainy, Boards of Canada-esque synths, near-inaudible, reverb-swamped vocals and plaintive piano chords over muffled beats, the mix is overwrought and lifeless. As all the elements coagulate into a sort of pallid sonic mush, one track becomes barely discernible from the other. There are some nice touches here and there: the quivering clarinet on ‘Communal Quo’ is gorgeous, and ‘The Rhythm the Rebel’ builds to a joyous swirl of samples and chiming bleeps. But unless you’re suffering from a nasty bout of insomnia, give this a miss. Buy this album here
