Only a few weeks on from their debut ambient album release ‘Unending’, C29 delivers the 2-track EP ‘Shimmer/Sleeper’.
Explore the powerful atmospheric sound design of this immersive 2-track EP.
Less than a week on from the release of their debut album release ‘Unending‘, an email from C29 landed in my inbox;
“I just finished this EP. Wanted to release it as a free DL. Maybe it’s too early for me to release something on your channel again… Hope I’m not spamming too much.”
So soon? I thought. Spamming? No way. I hit download and reached for the headphones. ‘Shimmer/Sleeper‘ was just the 2 tracks, but with a combined running time of 16 minutes. Almost instantly, that feeling of nostalgia returned. It’s a strange feeling, one where I feel comforted by memories of the past that are too unclear to remember. It’s a warmth of sound that encompasses the mind and body. If you’re a fan of ambient music, I’m hoping you’re with me, otherwise I must be going mad.
“I dreamed of you. I dreamed you were wandering in the dark, and so was I. We found each other. We found each other in the dark.”
Wandering through this euphoric, yet ghostly atmospheric journey of ‘Shimmer’, a voice becomes present. This quote is beautiful and ever so fitting for our late night ambient journey. In C29’s words about the single;
“With Shimmer, I wanted to make a track that is melodising to the nightlife that you perceive walking through a town or city. The lights, coming out at night, something glowing, shimmering as city lights, stars, lanterns or cars drive by. The thoughts and emotions that are coming up in these settings. I know.. nothing new, but nevertheless a strong imagination/experience every time.”
The album released on Monday 29th August and is available to download for free via Bandcamp, as well as stream on Spotify. You can find your preferred streaming/download platform here. Interested in discovering our artist catalogue? Head to our artist page here.
The debut 8-track ambient album from C29 is one that captured my attention from the first listen. ‘Unending‘ features deep atmospheric sound design with ambient textures and haunting vocal chops. It’s easy to find yourself transfixed on the sound when fully immersed with headphones in a dimly lit room.
