Description

In the realms of modern day late night ambient exploration Manchester's Marconi Union often draw comparisons with Brian Eno and Biosphere, perhaps Sigur Ros, but the graceful manner with which their richly melodic compositions unfold and the emotion these evoke sets them apart from their peers.

Since their 2003 debut album, 'Under Wires and Searchlights', they have continually refined and developed a unique musical identity that seamlessly blends elements of dub, jazz, ambience and electronic music.

The new album comprises six tracks, simply entitled Part 1 to Part 6. The tracks are minimal, combining warm drones and drifting sounds with occasional sparse rhythms. Part 1 is the original "Weightless" track, which almost appears to have a heartbeat running through it, slowing down very gently throughout the piece, encouraging a deep sense of relaxation in the body, it's use of specific rhythms, deep bass tones, frequencies and intervals inducing an almost trance like state in the listener. It has already attracted over 12 million worldwide views on YouTube and over 4 million followers on Soundcloud.

A recent posting about the track on the Mind Unleashed (following of 4.5 million) attracted nearly 16,000 likes and 13,000 shares - the interest in this track is phenomenal!

This will be Marconi Union's 7th studio album, their 6th to be released on the Just Music label.
