The debut album from Melbourne’s CASCADES is out now:
CASCADES explore elements of crushing post-hardcore and experimental noise, with rich orchestral swells from analog synthesisers and a strong underlying melodic thread.
The band’s music nods to both the mesmerising atmospheres of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Earth and The Cure, and the thundering aggression of Neurosis, Tragedy and Converge.
The results are passages of mournful, otherworldly beauty, which collapse into chasms of oppressive heaviness.
