“Discoveries” (2011) marked a great start for Sydney, Australia’s Northlane. With the even greater delivery of “Singularity”, Northlane’s much deserved and rapidly expanding fan base is growing faster than imagined.
Heavy and hard-hitting, “Singularity” never makes a full plunder, remaining regal with the support of an ethereal influence that is exhibited in all instruments. Ambiance surrounds the listener’s body, barely keeping them afloat above the deep grooves. The album delivers terms that sounds torturous, but musically, when one is teased amongst a perfect balance of angst and bliss, the experience is boundless.
Northlane’s Singularity will be loved by fans of Volume’s groove, Parkway Drive’s appeal and Elitist’s ambiance. They’ll be on tour soon with Structures, Intervals and Texas In July.
