Get ready to have your hair blown back by the new experimental project Aires (out of Lisbon, Portugal). The eight minute epic ‘Contraplacado’ is enough to put the fear of God into all of us – prepare the fallout shelter folks! Aires is only a few months old, born with a view to explore drone, ambient and field recordings and then combine them with a love of noise rock and shoegaze. The self-titled debut EP (out via Enough Records) is cinematic, dark and gives MBV’s ‘Holocaust’ a run for its money! The beautiful part is, just when you think it’s getting too left field, you realize a melody has already been set up, taking you to another head space. Fans of experimental tunes can stream/download at Bandcamp.
