GALE GRAND CENTRAL - Garlands - CD
- 9 tracks - Fluttering Dragon
Gale Grand Central is the solo project of Sweden's Per Svensen, supported by his compatriot Frederik
Bergström of No Festival Of Light. "Garlands" is his first album, and it must be noted that, as such, the
effort is more than convincing. The magnificent work thus delivered blends an array of electronic,
ambient, and industrial influences as its author successfully manages the difficult task of creating an
alchemy allowing for the spirits inherent to each genre to appear in perfect symbiosis with one another.
A relatively calm music from which, however, a furtive and incandescent aggressiveness evolves, albeit
with discretion and restraint. Stress is laid on the ambiences, on the particularly innovative and
captivating atmosphere of the work. Despite the industrial references, the melodies draw a superb furrow
through an impressive sonic magma, cradled by moments of subsidence, as they are typical of the
electronica genre. A truly beautiful album from the beginning right to the end, that one may wish to
share the destiny of its famous homonym from the early 1980s.
Highly recommended !
