Wolves in the Throne Room’s “Celestite” is Dreamy
This is what Wolves in the Throne Room said about their new album, Celestite, back in January:
“Celestite arises with a whole new, ethereal approach. There are no drums and no vocals. Rather, deep, heavy crystalline synthesizer journeying, Eno-inspired analog processing and arcane acoustic instrumentation expand upon dimensions folded within the universe of Celestial Lineage.”
Now that the group has unveiled the track “Celestite Mirror,” it’s clear that their statement wasn’t just hype. Actually, I think a more apt comparison than Brian Eno might be Vangelis’ score for Blade Runner — it has that same kinda otherwordly, dreamy vibe about it. And I think it would probably be pretty effective as a film score.
In any case, I wasn’t quite sure what to make of this track when I first listened to it yesterday, but several re-visits have totally sold me on it. Hopefully y’all feel the same way…
Celestite comes out July 8. WITTR kick off a tour in July; get dates here.
