Masters of the celestial epic, SURROUNDED, creates atmospheres of fragile beauty by blending surrealist lyrics, mournful melodies, orchestral flourishes and spacey experimentalism with a subtle, cinematic sway from lo-fi to hi-fi.
Encompassing a strangely beautiful rainbow of sound and emotion that twinkles beneath layers of cello, mellotron, radio chatter and synthesizers, their debut SAFETY IN NUMBERS envelopes the listener with an entrancing collection of songs that range from the innocent to the insane, the troubled to the tender, the sweet to the sad.
Surrounded emerged with their debut album ‘SAFETY IN NUMBERS’ following a yearlong recording session deep in Swedish forests eight years ago. Now signed to One Little Indian with superb new record ‘The Nautilus Years’ receiving glowing reports, the band return to the UK for a second set of shows the week beginning April 7th.
