Hear This: Portrayal - Departures

Share This Article:

Several years back we were enthralled by an album by Talk, they had promise, a swirling mix of analogue and digital sounds, producing music experimental and accessible. 

PortrayalThe main architect of that band Rob Tranter has joined forces with Joe Crook to form duo Portrayal, and they have an album, To The Black Sea, just about ready to drop. When this is released the pair will take their new music to li.ve crowds. 

Early tracks show distinct promise mixing myriad influences from rock and electronica into a unified whole. 

‘Departures’ takes the metronomic rhythms of Neu! created digitally, expansive walls of chiming guitar and a pop sensibility that allows the tracks melody and structure to breath. 

Far from the cold-heart you’d expect from this kind of tune, it displays a very human warmth.
