- Sung In Broken Symmetry by Aquarelle
1 review. Write a review for us »
This is the second album I think from Ryan Potts under the Aquarelle moniker. The boy describes himself as an FX pedal fetishist - each to their own - he satisfies his lustful cravings on this four track slab of blissed out noisy ambiance. The most blatant and obvious influence is Fennesz with the circling pulsating digital scree of the first two tracks, giving way to a calmer more rural sounding hiss on 'Origin' which despite the fuzz and treble has a haunting, gorgeous ambiance to it. The sounds on this slowly evolve and alter as the track progresses. It has a warm and textural feel, which gives way to the final track 'The Blue Light was my Baby' which uses electro-acoustic textures and less of the distortion to create a warm coda of carefully strummed guitars. Nicely, the album strips away the layers of distortion as it goes on and of course that's first the trick in the Fennesz 'Endless Summer' book of blistered ambiance but its a trick worth repeating.
