"Eight Storeys" is a breathtaking work of depth, beauty and fragility from Faithless guitarist Dave Randall.
The understated arrangements combine circular acoustic guitar motifs, cello, piano, otherwordly vocals and soaring electric guitar in wonderfully emotive compositions. Rhythmically playful moments reminiscent of Philip Glass morph into stark soundscapes more akin to those conjured by Iceland's Sigur Rós.
Throughout a sense of economy and simplicity define an album which is both soothing and haunting in equal measure.
A stunning piece of work.
