Does music bend space and time? When a five minute song seems like a huge black hole while a 24-minute-epic rushes past in the blink of an eye, one can get the impression that it’s possible. Concerning Pavallion, time is relative anyway, as already shown on their debut album 2048. Following the minimalistic catchiness of their 2017 five track LP, these four guys from Krefeld, Germany, now present their second album Stratospheria.
It contains 3 atmospheric longtracks that slowly unfold into great epics – from the lone, soft echo in a vast openness to the dense, impenetrable wall of sound. Warm, hypnotic post-rock meets modern psychedelic, reminding some of us of the good old Pink Floyd sound. Close your eyes and be carried away seems to be the motto – both live and in front of the record player.
Stratospheria is already on pre-order and will be released on October 26th via the audiophile indie label Tonzonen Records. It will be available as a limited gatefold LP in the vinyl colours marbled yellow (150 copies) and marbled green- blue (350 copies), as Digipak CD as well as for download.
