Seabuckthorn’s Andy Cartwright knows a thing or two about generating heavy emotional impact with subtlety and restraint and on the latest single from his forthcoming solo record, Form Less Ness, memories become ghosts. “Delmarco & Bozzetta” sings in the liminal breaths between formless shadows. Melodic tonal whispers float above a jagged aural sea, each side of the spectral divide reaching for the other but always out of reach. Glassine drones stitch together reflective spaces where comfort looks back at us with longing, teetering on a knife-edge as we hold ourselves together. “Delmarco & Bozzetta” does so much in the space of four pensive minutes. Cartwright creates a moment of beautiful tension and stops time so we can feel its full force and gather the strength to crawl out the other side.
Form Less Ness will be released on May 6 by A Quiet Room Recording. Pre-order HERE.
