Produced by Alex Somers (Sigur Rós, Jónsi) - Features members of The Drums- Sound Of Ceres = formerly Candy Claws - Features short story by AlastairReynolds The mysterious tale of The Twin, the second full-length from Soundof Ceres, exists in myriad permutations, too: a new album, a mesmerizing liveshow, videos, an Alastair Reynolds short story... and others in-between. Soundof Ceres' creative cohort of authors, composers, and illusionists traveled froma snowy Alpine retreat to the outer limits of deep space to bring you TheTwin. While their 2016 debut Nostalgia for Infinity responded to the hugenessof time and space, now Sound of Ceres explore the strangeness of being justone human outcome amidst an infinitude of possibilities. Guitarsandharpsichords gave way to more analog synthesizers and melodic percussion.As the music's dynamic range grew wider, timbres chilled, and more layers ofvocals were woven into the background. The Twin opens with the hypnotic"Gemini Scenic," analog keyboards and pulsating drums lifting up Karen's hazy,layered vocals; the intensity ebbs and flows, propelling the listener deeper intothe album's mysterious sonic universe. "Mercury's Moods" clicks and hisses likesome steam-powered alien machine, while "The Twin" underpins harp glissandiand Ryan's voice with crisp, dry snare hits. Hints of 60s exotica, 70s AM radio,and even symphonic grandeur weave through layers of rippling synths andshifting rhythms. Ideas drawn from the past and future fold together, creating asound that exists outside any particular time or trend.
