Hidden Hospitals

Surface Tension LP

Regular price $19.99

Feeling continually inspired across its 12 tracks is an element in which Surface Tension excels. With tight musicianship and excellent performances from singer David Raymond, Hidden Hospitals brings a unique flavour to each track: "Modern Saints," hangs harmonies over a torrent of toms and kick drums, contrasting with slow, distorted guitar melodies, flowing into the textured "History," introducing layers after layers of vocal harmonies. "From Toxin," an album stand-out, journeys into a world of twisting time signatures and winding melodies, and "Rose Hips" offers one of the album's finest hooks in its giant chorus. Additionally, each track maintains a fluid pace, rising and falling from moment to moment, tethering each song together. Surface Tension continually impresses with its depth, and rewards listeners who take the time to look below its surface. (Peter Sanfilippo - MEDIUM)
