::: Submerging The Sun LP release celebration :::
SUBMERGING THE SUN, the second LP by Some Ember, is a journal of climatological grief, intimate vulnerability, and transcendental sadness. Self-produced by songwriter Dylan Travis, the recordâ€™s sparse arrangements are weighted by bleak ambience and dramatic vocal turns.
Icy synthesizers pierce veils of fog-like drones, delivering sorrow and catharsis. Tides of dissonance ebb to reveal glittering mirages of
hope, which are just as soon swept away.
Long a fixture of the Oakland, CA musical underground, Some Ember has seen many forms â€“ a solo dream pop bedroom project, a four-piece goth rock outfit, then a hardware-based synth duo, and back again.
Following cassettes on Crash Symbols, Night-People and Ascetic House, the band released their first LP on Dream in 2014 and toured extensively.
In 2015, Travis and longtime collaborator Nina Chase made the move to Berlin. After a tumultuous two years (which saw a further cassette released on Dream, â€œDEBTS OF LOVEâ€), the band will release SUBMERGING THE SUN on Third Coming Records in November 2018.
“This is a sonic walk-through of landscapes that no longer exist. This is the drip of electronic water on memories of something deep in rooms without a view. Echoes of human activity resonating in the factory chapel, the walls and sentiments covered with moss.” -Roy Montgomery
“As haunting as their songs are, they are beautiful. With each listen this project takes you to a deep, dark, murky place where sound has the power to change your reality!” – CVLT Nation
“A slow burner, distorted and obscure, visionary and obsessive, Lunacyâ€™s distinctive sonic craftsmanship will crawl under your skin and linger and â€œsedimentâ€ in your mind indefinitely.” – White Light//White Heat
“I saw the seasons change like stages of putrefaction in my decaying flesh Spring came darkest of all sprouting death-like flowers through puss-filled pores Silent screams choked by earth echoed in my skull from a thousand dead Bodies buried deep below forever suffocating in their final breath”
