 It is imaginative, boundary-pushing post rock that would easily win over the genre’s most hardened detractors with its display of energy & enthusiasm... Over 48 minutes, Beneath The Watchful Eyes create some truly exceptional soundscapes based on dynamics and imaginative expression. Whilst dynamics are the core of any post-rock album … loud & quiet, hard & soft, noisy & melodious, fast & slow … not every post-rock album displays the same level of imaginative expression that is presented on “We held our breath until our hearts exploded”. The fluidity of the music along with the electronics really helps to set this album apart, and it is in the use of electronics that I find particularly fascinating.
