Description

An epic concept album by Swedish musical project, Testbild! Inspired by the seas, it is unusual and intriguing art pop fusing electronica with folk instrumentation. Aquatint, the most ambitious Testbild! project to date, is a conceptual piece coloured by the sea. It comprises a short story observations of a lighthouse librarian and a short film, which is a look at our world from under the sea's surface. The music is a dream-like descent into steam fog and black swirls. Layers of cinematic pop and 60's jazz mix with sea shanties, Mexican trumpets and vibraphones. It is the echoes from a forgotten harbour, where the ropes never stopped creaking and the meteorograph went on ticking. Key players are Petter Herbertsson and Mattias Nihlen with a songwriting contribution from Hepburn's Matt Jones.
