Biography

Sometimes, “influences” and “sounds like” names can give a clear idea of what a musician is trying to do, offering a spectrum in which he tries to place himself.

Most of the influences of David Lancaster, based in London and South East UK belongs to the main post-rock room but while listening to “Getting Closer”, not all make sense. As a reviewer I would keep only names like Brian Eno (his ambient works), Aphex Twin (“Selected Ambient Works vol II”), Stars Of The Lid, The Album Leaf or Riceboy Sleeps, and add a few others like Hammock, Windy and Carl or Rafael Toral (“Sound Mind Sound Body” and “Wave Field”).

As the artwork, project name and title of the record suggest it, David Lancaster is offering soundscapes / drone music with a clear tendency towards warm, quiet, radiant and comfortable atmospheres. Evolving layers of sounds, a few beats in the background sometimes, occasional field recordings and that’s it. “Getting Closer” isn’t presenting something new or groundbreaking but never pretends to do it too, it’s in fact a very humble and sincere work, and successful.
