As Brucia Records prepares to release “Dissolution to Salt and Bone” , the highly anticipated first album from experimental doom / ambient drone duo THE SUN AND THE MIRROR , Invisible Oranges is hosting an exclusive premiere of the record at THIS LOCATION !
Brucia Records will officially release “Dissolution to Salt and Bone” on April 2nd 2021 .
Last month, Cvlt Nation hosted a premiere of an excerpt from the album track "Katherinella Angustri" at THIS LOCATION !
THE SUN AND THE MIRROR consists of cellist Sarah Townley , who creates a haunting wall of ambient drone and deconstructed classical melodies, and multi-instrumentalist Reggie Townley on vocals, guitar, bass, electronics and drums.
The album flows with effortless strength, powerfully blending beneath the underwater currents of its stream a unique mix of doom, psychedelic, minimalistic noise, dark orchestral, drone and folk.
“Dissolution to Salt and Bone” was written and composed using the onboard generator of an RV during a road trip to the Oregon Coast and through Ironside Mountain, while the band was on their way to scatter a family member’s ashes.
A dramatically private meditation on mourning and loss which somehow manages to bring forth the themes of decay and the fossilisation of bones as a universal archetype for instances such as memory, change and evolution.
THE SUN AND THE MIRROR ’s debut album is a phenomenally multi-layered work: spilling out blood and tears, rage and sorrow, their audial exploration in the realm of avant-garde and experimental music evokes a poetry of broken memories and incumbent omens.
“Life into waves, in the grey outgoing tide. We will dissolve, body of salt and ash and bone”.
