Verbose is UK based artist Allan Richmond and Wonder is his long awaited new full length album on Tokyo basedlabel Moamoo. Following a debut album on Neo Ouija and a string of EPs on influential independent labels such asCactus Island, Awkward Silence Recordings and Unlabel, Verbose returns in 2007 with a full length album featuringbrand new material recorded during 2006 and 2007.A further departure / progression from the electronica of early releases, Wonder develops the themes introducedon the split ep with Maps and Diagrams on Awkward Silence Recordings. Sometimes beautiful, sometimes dark andchaotic, Wonder is a unique marriage of quiet and loud melancholia, undercurrents of electronica and hypnotic postrock - a soundtrack to loneliness, isolation and rejection.Musically inspired by diverse artists such as Autechre, Cult Of Luna, Mono, Mogwai and 65daysofstatic and adoptingthemes from an ongoing obsession with Japanese cinema and literature (Haruki Murakami in particular), Verbosetakes another step torwards defining his intended sound.
