Many thanks to Sydney duo Fabels for sending this song/clip our way. It’s a totally captivating dreamscape of a song. It draws on shoegaze, post-rock and ambient elements of repetition and hallucinogenic airiness.
The sparkle and chime of Ben Aylward’s guitar widens the horizon of the song beautifully, allowing the atmosphere to rise and retreat with a cinematic quality that never gets overblown. Vocalist Hiske Weijers adds to the otherworldliness of the music perfectly, creating a sound, on this song at least, that permeates like a dark Germanic noir take on Massive Attack and Durutti Column.
‘Waiting’ comes from Fabels’ forthcoming third album Minds.
