8/10 Ant Staff review, 30 August 2018

French artist Sylvain Bombled aka Mayerling returns to Hands In The Dark for his second album, coming some five years after debut Mayerling album ‘Cut Up’. The seven tracks that comprise ‘Roche’ are detailed, intricate hallucinatory and psychedelic electronic pieces that takes us on a sweltering journey that begins with the titular track - a solitary walk through sun baked landscapes, evoking widescreen images of vast, desolate scorching deserts. It’s as though we’re constantly searching as we wander on ‘Bright Days’ while objects and lifeforms appear in mirages. Imagine you’re high on peyote and lost somewhere inside a Sergio Leone or Ennio Morricone Spaghetti Western being soundtracked by Popol Vuh, Klaus Schulze and Tangerine Dream. The sun has retreated on ‘Only These Echoes’ as we lay beneath the shimmering stars of the vast universe above and receive a visitation from some ancient spirit. It feels as though we’re one of the last remaining humans in a post apocalyptic world as we tune into a radio broadcast on ‘Perversion’. As more pieces of the puzzle appear and we start to form some sort of loose narrative to the journey, the gorgeously cinematic and mysterious closing track 'Persistence ReĢtinienne' appears to offer a sense of resolve but just delicatley flutters and  then disappears in ghostly fashion, leaving us wondering exactly where we’ve been?
